          Small steps save energy

          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.

              Walking the walk

              The theme of this year’s Green Week, hosted by the city of Oxford and University of Mississippi, is “walk the walk,” which is well suited for one of the main concepts in Sustainability: Transportation. Sustainable living, as defined by the Earth Policy Institute, is “shifting to a renewable energy-based, reuse/recycle economy with a diversified transport system.”
              A challenge to all community members this week comes from the Green Week pledge drive at the Student Union. Members of Oxford, Lafayette County and the university are encouraged to pledge to use an alternative means of transportation at least one day a week. While this could include biking or walking to work or using the OUT bus, it could also mean sharing a ride to work with someone else.

                    Eating green means more than just veggies

                    GREEN WEEK 2010The idea of going green has been a growing trend in the nation for years but the larger concept, sustainable living, actually focuses on more than just recycling or changing to more efficient lightbulbs. Focusing on transportation, energy consumption and diet, sustainable living can be a major philosophical life change for people.
                    The City of Oxford and University of Mississippi, in hosting Green Week beginning today through Friday, hope to introduce the community to small steps to begin leading a sustainable life.
