By looking for the ENERGY STAR label when you shop for electronics, you can make a difference in our “climate footprint” by reducing energy use and the resulting greenhouse gas emissions.
LEED Green Building
Tulane University follows the U.S. Green Building Council’s LEED standard in new construction projects and major renovations.
The annual recycling calendar begins with the collection of over 20 tons of cardboard as students move in to the residence halls.
On the uptown campus, Tulane recycles paper, cardboard, aluminum cans, plastic bottles and electronics. Residence halls have recycling rooms or outside collection centers, office and classroom buildings have paper collection, and there are recycling bins for plastic bottles and aluminum cans on the outside grounds and inside campus buildings.
Visit recycle.tulane.edu to learn about recycling in your residence hall or office. Recycle cardboard by removing non-recyclable material and setting boxes next to your garbage can. Reduce waste by bringing your own cup, printing on both sides, and choosing “for here” dining options
We're trying to be conscious of the environment in every aspect of university life and work.
