The University of Arkansas at Little Rock’s Sustainability Committee works year round to promote conversation and the preservation of the environment.

“Our goal is to decrease the carbon footprint and to increase sustainability actions in the community and on campus,” said Seth Cook, freshman intern for the committee.

Below are a few tips that will help you to conserve energy and decrease your carbon footprint.

1. Turn off lights when you leave a room.
2. Close the blinds to reduce the amount of heat or cold air that enters through the window.
3. Set your thermostat down two degrees in the winter and up two degrees in the summer.
4. Unplug appliances when not in use such as hair dryers, computers, cell phone chargers, and TVs.
5. Go outside and study under natural light versus artificial light!
