Going Green

CO-Flag_onlineColorado Mountain College is on a mission to reduce their Greenhouse Gas Emissions by 12.5% every five years until they reach “carbon neutrality” in 2050.  Some of the efforts that that have been initiated by the college include:

  • recycling of magazines, office paper, cardboard, newspaper, and commingled items
  • replacing incandescent light bulbs with compact fluorescent or LED bulbs
  • installing programmable thermostats
  • create an employee green team

In addition, the Steamboat Springs Campus will be hosting two upcoming events:

  • Predator Issues in Ecosystems with George Wuerthner at the Bud Werner Library on March 25 from 6:30 pm – 8:30 pm
  • The CMC Conference on Sustainability 2014 from April 17 @ 5:00 pm – April 18 @ 2:00 pm
