Conservation: What You Can Do - At Work and School

Thanksgiving Day

The Zoo will be closed on Thursday, November 22 for the holiday.

At Work and School

Some of the ideas you use at home can be applied on a larger scale. Take your commitment to conservation to school or work with you.

  • Do an energy audit at your office or school
  • Green your building by planting trees, installing a green roof, and minimizing the use of paper, water, and energy. Encourage your co-workers by posting signs in the kitchen or on the bulletin board.
  • Start a green team to come up with ideas and suggestions to green-up the school or office.
  • Recycle everything and use recycled paper and products whenever you can. If your company won’t do it, do it yourself; ask your co-workers to buy paper and plastic recycle bins and then collect them at the end of the week.
  • Install a programmable thermostat that will turn the heat off while you are away from school or the office.
