Support awareness for sustainability and energy reduction
This project will fund stickers that remind students and researchers in the Chemistry, Biology and Geology labs of the energy savings of keeping fume hood sashes closed, and to implement a recycling program.
This project, led by CWU Chemistry and Sustainability Certificate student Emma Nelson, has two goals. The first goal is to raise $500 to fund Shut the Sash Fume Hood signs, which can reduce energy use by 40%. The second goal is to raise $2500 to support a personal protective equipment recycling program in appropriate teaching/research laboratories.
Emma is working to cultivate sustainability in CWU’s laboratories, one of the most resource intensive spaces on campus. Visit the cwu.edu/sustainability/sustainable-laboratories to learn more.
