Take a peek inside Ohio University's Ecohouse, a model for sustainable living that serves as a student residence and a learning center.

Established in 2005, its mission is to demonstrate affordable, green technology and sustainable living by providing education and outreach for Ohio University, the local community and the Appalachian region.

The Ecohouse's three residents host potluck suppers, open houses and workshops for community members to share information about the technology incorporated into the systems of the house and model a lifestyle that can help the planet.

This spring, Kate Hammond, an Ecohouse resident and Ohio University graduate student in environmental studies, gave the Outlook team a tour of the home.

Earth Week tip from the Office of Sustainability 

Shop at Campus Surplus

Need another piece of furniture for your office? Looking for a filing cabinet to handle your paperwork? Considering the purchase of some computer speakers or other peripherals? Count on Campus Surplus for your supply needs.

Many high-quality items, including furniture, lab equipment and computer supplies are in stock up at The Ridges and priced to move. By purchasing surplus items rather than new ones, we "close the loop" by generating a market for reusables at Ohio University.

Donating your unused items is just the beginning. Shop Campus Surplus to save energy, materials, waste and money!

The warehouse is open from 8 a.m. to 3:30 p.m daily.
