As you pack for your move to college, keep in mind that Mount Holyoke College is committed to reducing our collective impact on the environment and that you should think about "being green" in your hall and your room. Easy things to do are to choose light emitting diode (LED) for your desk lamp, bring a reusable water bottle and coffee mug, and plan to plug any small appliances into a power strip that can be turned off to avoid using energy when not in use. LED bulbs and recycling bins are available from the Eco-Reps at the beginning of the semester if you need them.
Take a look at our Living and Working Green at Mount Holyoke page for additional suggestions on what you can do before and after you arrive on campus to reduce your impact on the environment.
