College is not only a time to learn in the classroom, but also a time to learn about life and living on your own. Part of this is the awareness of how your lifestyle affects you and the world around you.
By shopping energy smart for college, you can make a difference in your “climate footprint” by reducing greenhouse gas emissions. You will also help Tulane University reduce our impact on global warming. If all Tulane students shopped energy smart, our annual greenhouse gas emissions could decrease by almost a million pounds each year.
You will save on energy bills when you live on your own. Everything you buy now will have a price later.
Tulane students created the ENERGY STAR Showcase Dorm Room to show how simple energy efficiency can be. We encourage you to take what we have learned about energy efficiency and apply it to your dorm lifestyle by making wise purchasing and energy use decisions.
