Sustainability Tips

Help keep the GREEN in Evergreen!

  • Turn off your computer when you're not using it
  • Turn off your lights and unplug appliances when you are not using them
  • Report all dripping faucets, running toilets, leaking pipes, flickering lights, and malfunctioning heaters to RAD Facilities immediately by calling 360-867-6764; longer you wait to report work orders like these, the more water and energy is wasted
  • Purchase a reusable coffee mug and use it daily to get discounts at campus dining facilities
  • Use a refillable container for water
  • Take public transportation and use the Night-Line
  • Turn down your heat, wear sweaters, and use blankets instead
  • Be mindful of water consumption by taking shorter showers and turning off the faucet when you are brushing your teeth and shaving
  • Bring your own bags when you go shopping and reuse them often
  • When eating in campus dining facilities look for local and organic options
  • Support the Organic Farm by purchasing fresh-grown veggies and flowers from the farm stand on Red Square on Tuesdays and Thursdays starting at 11 am
  • Buy local whenever possible
  • Purchase green cleaning supplies at the Corner Store
  • Compost your food scraps and yard waste
  • Purchase textbooks from the Bookstore: individual student online ordering means single-item shipping which exponentially increases deliveries to the school
  • Bring old things to give away at the Free Store and take home new-to-you things to simultaneously save things from the landfill and decrease production of new stuff
