A brief description of the campaign, including how students and/or employees were engaged:

In August 2018, the Environmental Leadership Program implemented signs that were stuck on the paper towel dispensers in all academic building bathrooms that said "Why take two when one will do?". This was intended for individuals to stop and evaluate their use of paper towels that currently end up in the landfill after a single use.


A brief description of the measured positive impact(s) of the campaign:

There was an overall positive outcome because of the initiative: the school was able to reduce its paper towel expense by 10% for the fall of 2018 when compared to fall 2017.
