Idea ~ Give Tours of Your Green Demo Space

Green education for office employees is easy with tiny signs!

Find green business solutions
In UC-Berkeley's "Green Apartment" are appliances such as refrigerators, electronics and lights - all approved by Energy Star. This real student apartment also is outfitted with earth-friendly shampoo, deodorant, dish and laundry detergent, not to mention jugs of filtered water, cloth napkins, natural fiber bed linens and more.

The Green Room Committee is run jointly by UC Berkeley's Recycling and Refuse Services, Residential & Student Service Programs, Berkeley Green Campus, and the Student Sustainability Education Coordinator Program.

Various "green" programs, including the Global Environment Theme House at UC Berkeley's Foothill residence hall, have sprouted around campus since 2002 when University of California Regents adopted a policy toward more sustainable practices and environmental stewardship after being presented a research paper outlining how to achieve these goals. This set off a series of energy conservation efforts at UC Berkeley, including green demonstration areas.

Bathroom products and description cards

The apartment's shared bathroom is filled with a host of personal care products chosen for their environmental sensitivity, along with signs describing their ingredients, price and ecological advantages.

The effort drew wide attention with the unveiling at UC Berkeley of the "Green Room," the nation's first fully-outfitted, eco-friendly residence hall room. The idea began when the San Rafael-based Strategic Energy Innovations (SEI), approached environmental student leaders here about outfitting a UC Berkeley residence hall room with Energy Star appliances through a grant from the U.S. Department of Energy. SEI is a non-profit group that helps schools, businesses and other entities meet energy conservation goals.

Upcoming solution seminars for California
Provide simple signs that promote your green strategies: recycling boxes, worm composting, double-sided printing, etc. Bite-size information is almost as good as sugar-coated medicine! Complete story: Berkeley.edu
