Paper

 

We use 24 million sheets (48,000 reams) of paper per year on campus. 2,880 trees are needed to make that much paper and if you stacked it all up, the pile would be as tall as 22 Rhodes Towers! Buy recycled!

Recycling

 

In 2016 CSU sent almost 990 tons of trash to landfill while 180 tons of material was recycled. We aim to increase our recycling rate from 15% to 20% in the next year.

Energy

 

As EPA Green Power Partners we are using 18,000,000 kilowatt-hours of green power annually – that’s 30% of our electricity use!
