Sustainability Checklist

Although Denison actively facilitates and encourages sustainable living, living an environmentally conscious life is largely determined by your daily decisions. Here are a few reminders about small practices you can incorporate into your life to preserve the earth’s resources:

  • Bring reusable containers/bags when you go shopping
  • Turn off lights, and make it a habit to look around a room to turn off lights prior to leaving. 
  • Unplug appliances that are not in use (they still are using electricity)
  • Recycle and compost properly
  • Inform physical plant if your room is too hot; you’ll be more comfortable and save energy.
  • Make an effort to eat less meat. Meat is more resource-intensive and results in greater carbon emissions.
  • Use a reusable water bottle or coffee mug, rather than a disposable cup.
  • Wash clothing with cold water
  • Buy used versions of books from the book store
