A number of offices are pursuing Green Office Certifications, and those that already have, are continuing to make changes to increase their scores.
A few examples of the Green Team's successes include:
- For Earth Day 2014, the team partnered with the School of Education Green Team to collect surplus office supplies that were then donated to city school teachers.
- Collections boxes were setup throughout Krieger Hall for recycling pens, energy bar wrappers, and ink cartridges.
- The Mathematics Department recently installed power management settings on all of its computers.
- The Center for Language Education removed its 5-gallon bottled water dispenser and replaced it with a Quench filtered water system.
- An onboarding document was created for Krieger Hall, which provides a quick sustainability overview for new employees and students in the building.

Think before you print.
Office paper is highly recyclable, but a lot gets wasted. Waste reduction is more cost-effective than recycling because it reduces the amount of material that needs to be collected, transported and processed.
