When it comes to being sustainable you have to have at least a little knowledge on the topic. The term “environmentally sustainable” can mean a lot of different things to different people but it is defined as “a state in which the demands placed on the environment can be met without reducing its capacity to allow all people to live well, now and in the future.” Being on a college campus we tend to forget how easy it is to help our environment conserving and protecting our natural resources. We should all be a little environmentally friendly making our Ohio University community a better place by taking a few small steps. These steps I will be discussing today include: recycling, practicing conservation, stop littering, use eco friendly bags or paper when grocery shopping instead of plastic and finally, educate others around you about the topic.
Let's face it; going green on a college campus isn't exactly the easiest thing to do. Between classes, clubs and a social life, it's pretty easy to just throw those bottles in the trash and forget about them, whether you live on or off campus. In addition when it’s snowing or raining, it’s just as easy to take the easy way out and not go green. But you can still be sustainable in any season and any weather!
