Green Tip

Use refurbished electronics.

You can get refurbished electronics for a steal (they often sell for less than 50 percent of the retail price), and before they're resold to the public, they go through an intense defect-testing process and the warranties usually remain intact. So you can save money and help reduce the amount of waste sent to landfills.

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!
