Green Tip

Recycle & Save on Energy!

Recycling is an excellent way to save energy and preserve the environment. One recycled tin can would save enough energy to power a TV for three hours. One recycled glass bottle would save enough energy to power a computer for 25 minutes while one recycled plastic bottle would save enough energy to power a 60-watt light bulb for three hours. Seventy percent less energy is required to recycle paper as compared to making it from raw materials.

We are all stewards of our home, Planet Earth.  The University of Memphis community has demonstrated its deep commitment to this idea by launching a variety of projects and initiatives designed to conserve natural resources or to use them more effectively, as well as by imparting the concept of sustainability to its students, who will in turn carry it out into the greater community.  From designing buildings that meet LEEDS standards, to conducting biodiesel research, to working in the ever-expanding TIGUrS community garden, tiger blue goes green!
