This credit was marked as Not Pursuing so Reporting Fields will not be displayed.

In the near future BU will transform the typical dorm room that is set up in the George Sherman Union every year with a “green” makeover. The dorm room will include CFLs and LED lights, smart power strips, a “Turn ‘em off” sign on the light switch, organic sheets, rugs and curtains, reusable water bottles, coffee mugs and bags, organic plants, a Charlie card and bicycle, sustainable/earth focused wall posters, etc.

We will also create a “virtual” Model Room on the Sustainability@BU website. This will allow the University community to have access to explore a “green” room at all times and help increase awareness of how small changes can have a big impact.
