Top Tips on Green Universities


Going green do not means that you go to a supermarket and buy up all the environment friendly cleaner and product. Similarly green universities do not only mean that making them green and growing up greenery in its premises. But actually in green universities you can make the change in both reasonably and efficient ways. There’s no need to spend a lot of money to do your part as there are some things for you can do that will make you help your green universities good and will make a serious difference.

Step 1

Helping the Mother Nature is not that hard but you have to be loyal and hardworking to your green universities can lead to a very big change. The very first thing you can do for green universities is hit the lights off. Whenever you leave the room switch off all the lights as it will only takes some seconds of your time but will save a lot of energy from wasting. In green universities you have use water very wisely so try to show your gratefulness by taking short showers and turning off the taps properly as in some other universities and places water is a big commodity.

Step 2

Sometimes we see the plugs are switched on even if they are not in use or our appliance is connected but still off. A research is done in green universities that students sometimes unplug the socket but they left the switch on which is a waste of lot of energy slowly. We are not aware of the fact that if switch is even on it still consumes power so try to unplug and switch of the switch.

Step 3

It is very important to recycle things in green universities as its lot seen that the pizza boxes, soda cans, wrappers and other items are lying around which can be a reuse and can be useful. You can play a very vital role in green universities by making these things recycled and bringing them and you have a chance to inspire your friends and others to do the same.

Step 4

The students may use their own personal appliances which can really be bad for green universities as they would consume a lot of energy. If you want to use refrigerator, microwave or washing machine then try to use the one provided by the university and if they don’t own one then you should ask the university to buy one so that everyone can use it. Using it separately may cause the energy to be wasted a lot.

Step 5

You should have a proper dress code for appropriate season just like cooler in winter and warmer in summer as it will be helpful in green universities and will allow others to adopt it from you.


The green universities are really affected in the matter of food and its utensil provision. Buy less meat as it consumes a lot of water to produce and instead take chicken or prefer vegetables. Similarly in food utensils buy recycled plates, cups and spoons and buy local food instead of having the food delivered from several miles.


If we all put a little effort in the green universities it might make a massive positive effect and will carry to generations to generations.
