The efforts of everyone at Stanford – students, faculty and staff – are crucial to creating a more sustainable campus. Riding a bike instead of driving, carpooling, recycling, turning off unnecessary lights, making double-sided copies, keeping the thermostat low in the winter and high in the summer – these are among the simple but meaningful acts that reduce our environmental footprint. In coming together as a campus community to live Cardinal Green, we can maximize our individual efforts to acheive significant results. Cardinal Green programs such as the Cardinal Green Labs and Cardinal Green Events program focus on high-impact areas that require targeted support. Through seasonal conservation campaigns, we can hone campus attention in on conserving specific resources, and all of these individual contributions can be tracked (and rewarded!) through My Cardinal Green. Once engaged in the program, you can receive custom recommendations relevant to your lifestyle, track your progress, and be rewarded for your efforts.
