Our stellar Dal Libraries Green Team, aka Sandy Dwyer, Jan Pelley, Aran Silmeryn and Janice Slauenwhite, has won Dal’s Sustainability ReThink Award for the third year running. Not to brag or anything, but these guys are pretty hard to beat!
So what did the Team do in 2011-2012 to merit this honor?
- replaced refrigerators in Killam staff break rooms with energy star rated models
- reduced number of paper copies of publications (The Stand, Dalhousie magazine) being sent to library personnel
- partnered with ENVS-3502 students on a project to improve waste diversion rates
- arranged for “sustainability kits” to be made available for sign-out at each of the libraries. These kits contain equipment that will allow individuals to conduct mini energy audits in their own homes. They’re awaiting delivery of the kits now so stay tuned
Congratulations Greenies, you rock!
