By washing your clothes in cold water instead of warm, a household will save on energy bills. 85 to 90 percent of energy used is for heating the water. By only washing full loads you cut down on total loads a week, saving water and money.
The U of M Sustainability Program was busy in the Spring 2013 getting Lambuth set
up with their own recycling program after being approach by some very eager and passionate
Lambuth students. Within one month our recycle team took several trips to Lambuth
and set up a full scale recycle program. The Lambuth sustainability leaders were quick
to initiate the new recycle program with a Recycle Kick-Off. We continue to work with
the Lambuth campus in all their recycling needs as they continue to grow and be an
example for the Jackson community.
