Green on Campus
The college students are returning to or moving onto campuses across South Carolina to begin the fall semester and if you’re the parent of a student or a scholar yourself, think about the impact you may have on your campus’s carbon footprint. First, think about ditching your vehicle. Most classes and events are within walking distance on a college campus, and you can always use public transportation or bum a ride to places off-campus. If you really want to keep your vehicular independence, think about getting a bicycle or moped to get from A to B. When it comes to those campus get-togethers ditch the disposable cups and bring your own re-usable cup to minimize waste. Looking for a way to power your dorm room? Think about getting a kit to turn your bicycle into a stationary power generator!
