April is Earth Month: Think Green IT

How can you make the world a better place? Learn more about Green IT!

April is Earth Month and the Office of Information Technology (OIT) encourages you to think Green IT — to consciously consider how to conserve energy and properly use or discard IT-related technologies. 

Here are a few tips to help you reduce your carbon pawprint: 

  • Buy Energy Star certified electronics.
  • Manage your power settings and turn off unused devices.
  • E-cycle your devices.
  • Reduce your paper usage.
  • Make contributions to reduce the university’s and the world’s carbon footprint.
