Sustainability Tips



Note: Eco-Pokes is no longer an active program. Rather, this page serves as a reference for past CSC Eco-Pokes projects. 

Eco-Pokes is a UW Campus Sustainability Committee (CSC) initiative to provide easy tips for how students, staff, and faculty can reduce their impact on the environment (and wallets). The CSC also provides updates about opportunities to get involved on campus and in the community. Check out our 2015-16 posts on energy efficiency, waste reduction, and alternative transportation.

Alternative Transportation—Winter 2015 Eco-Pokes 
Did you know that UW is a designated Bike-Friendly Campus? Check out this issue of Eco-Pokes to learn about bike routes and resources, and a large number of public transportation alternatives to driving your car to campus or downtown.

Energy Efficiency—Spring 2016 Eco-Pokes
Utility bills are expensive for university campuses, but simple behavioral changes can make a big difference. Learn what UW is doing to save energy and what you can do to help.

Waste Minimization—Summer 2016 Eco-Pokes
Landfills are finite—and expensive. This issue provides tips that range from reducing your office waste to hosting a zero-waste event. We also talk about big changes to UW recycling facilities and tell you where to drop off your recyclables.
