Spring greening: Frugal flushing
Apr 13, 2009
April is Earth Month 2009. As part of the campus' observation, Outlook will post a weekly tip from the Office of Sustainability to help the community take steps to help the environment.
For a free way to conserve water, take a clean two-liter bottle, add a few pebbles to weigh it down, and place it in the tank of your toilet. It will displace two liters of clean water from being used for each flush, potentially saving thousands of gallons of clean water per year.

On Wednesday, be sure to check Outlook to see Associate Professor of Civil Engineering Ben Stuart and Sustainability Coordinator Sonia Marcus debate the merits of LEED Certification. "LEED certification: A commitment to conservation or green gone wrong?" is the third in a five-part Earth Month series, during which faculty and staff at Ohio University will tackle controversial issues within the environmental movement.
