To help with understanding how small green changes can make a big impact, both on the environment and on your wallet, today’s Green Week activities are focused on helping with energy audits. Outside the student union, members of Habitat For Humanity is working with low-income residents in the Oxford area to provide free consultations and upgrades to lower electric bills. Several university buildings are also competing to see who can reduce their energy consumption the most. A workshop on energy conservation will be open to the community at 2:30 today which looks at the many ways to reduce the amount of energy consumed.
All this week we’ll be looking at different aspects of how Oxford and Ole Miss are moving towards a more sustainable community.
