For reposting this (I suppose).
I think some people are coming for your head (or your other appendages)
people on Facebook are talking of printing fliers? just thought i would lets that fly out there.
In other news (for which I am sure they’ll come after me for):
GreenSpace works in conjunction with University Facilities and Services to meet their mission for a more sustainable living space. Upon the group’s request, Facilities installed a water bottle refill-station right in the resident hall, to make reducing plastic bottle usage easier. The group also received permission to install shower timers that are set at five minutes in effort to conserve water usage.
So, in order to make life easier, the sustainability group advocates investing in some capital and using resources more effectively than they were previously. I like the way they think! But wouldn’t it be “greener” to just use the sinks? More important of course, why does a group of people who are dedicated to sustainability need a shower that shuts off after 5 minutes? Two questions: are we sure that this will actually save water? Second, wouldn’t making each of them pay for the water they use be a better way to do this? Oh, wait a minute, economists get in hot water for trying to think openly about when people should pay for things themselves.
And in the, “you can’t make this up” category:
Plans are in the works to host “Do it in the Dark”, an event co-sponsored by University Health Services. This unique event is dedicated to educating students not only on practicing safe sex, but also to do so in a sustainable manner. The event will feature green sex products and information on saving energy whilst having sex (i.e. turning off lights).
What kind of posters would they make up if I decided to comment on this?
