Thank you for making a difference! You can help Mason advance towards climate neutrality with a few simple actions. Some of these include:

  • Sign Mason’s climate action pledge.
  • Cut your energy use by turning off lights when you leave the room or unplugging unused appliances and electronics.
  • Reduce your water consumption by taking shorter showers.
  • Walk, bike, carpool, or take public transportation to campus.
  • Recycle whenever possible!
  • Encourage your department or office to be a Green Office.

What are Mason’s toughest challenges? Mason can use your ideas to: reduce Mason’s consumption of natural resources; have more efficient buildings; generate renewable energy; reduce the percent of vehicles that have only one occupant commuting to campus; or develop waste minimization and recycling strategies. You can even get funding for implementing those ideas through the Patriot Green Fund.
