I’m big on resolutions, in part because I like lists. OCD aside, I also like the opportunity to take on a new challenge.  I have many goals this year for the OOS, and sustainability goals for myself. I hope sharing these with you will help you to develop a personal goal to incorporate sustainability into your life. Leave us a comment and share your goals for 2012!

Here are some high impact suggestions to get you started:

  • Turn off your computer when you aren’t using it.
  • Skip the plastic bags.
  • Give up bottled water.
  • Eat more locally grown food.

A few of my goals for OOS this year…

  • Make this blog conversational (instead of announcement board)and useful for you. If you’d like to contribute – tell me!
  •  Make the website more functional and interesting.
  • Increase the number of students participating in our programs. If volunteering is on your list of resolutions – I can help you out.
  • Throw an awesome Earth Day event! Woo!
  • Increase the number of energy-focused programming on campus.
  • Publish a campus green guide.

Trey, our sustainability coordinator has a few resolutions to share too…

  • Complete the climate action plan by December.
  • Renew our registration with STARS and work to improve our rating in 2012.
  • Exceed the Chancellor’s 5% energy reduction goal.
