Green Offices

Universities across the country, including my own (UCLA), are implementing programs that are meant to inspire sustainable actions within the many different offices located on the campuses.  These green office programs inspire greenness in ways that don't require expensive renovations or equipment replacement.  They truly show the great affect that small action changes can have; i.e. using CFL light bulbs, printing double-sided, using power strips, etc..

Although it would be nice, stadiums don't have to install solar panels or reclaimed water lines or any other  big ticket changes to make a difference.  By simply tweaking the way in which the administrative offices run, MLB organizations can make a positive green impact.
