University president Rev. Mark L. Poorman, C.S.C., and the Presidential Advisory Committee on Sustainability recently issued an Earth Day challenge to the UP community: “What Can You Do To Help?” Students, faculty, and staff are encouraged to make a commitment to take at least one tangible step that is within your own control toward increasing sustainability on campus. All through the month of April, the committee is asking you to make a commitment and share it with us.
The women’s soccer team declares they are passionate about our environment and “vows to reduce our energy consumption during the month of April and beyond. By unplugging chargers and appliances while not in use, and turning off all lights after use, we can all make a huge difference! Please join us in reducing the amount of energy we consume on a daily basis. Saving energy and helping our environment is just turning off one switch or unplugging one appliance away!”
Share your commitment via firstname.lastname@example.org. At the end of the month, the most impactful sustainability commitment will be recognized and the individual or team who made the commitment will be featured in various campus media.
