The project trains students to Green Certify their peers’ residence hall rooms. The student Green Auditors are trained to perform audits for their peers and recommend improvements to their practices. Participating residents are asked to make three new sustainable choices for the year—if they follow through, they earn Green Room Certification. Actions include activating power management settings on computers, turning off lights whenever exiting the room, and cutting down on long showers.
Clark students can sign up to receive their Green Room Audit for the 2012-13 academic year at clarkgreenroom.tumblr.com/signup.
