The heating and cooling systems could be more efficient and a lot of toilet paper is wasted in the residence halls

I think that the presence of trees on campus should definitely be increased (especially between Low and Butler). I also think we should install solar panels and have green roofs (gardens). I think that the dining halls should only buy organic food.

Recycling and composting in ferris. No trash bins needed. Radiator blankets and double paned glass in all buildings for improved energy efficiency.

More awareness on food composting and detriments of wasting food.

composting? reusable plates in Ferris
53
11/14/2016 21:50:00233
Dishwasher in Ferris, more recycling bins in libraries, emphasize sustainability during NSOP
54
11/14/2016 21:50:50124
People are often too lazy to recycle in the residence halls, I realize Ferris and John Jay is difficult to have regular plates, but maybe something can be done

In the summer especially, cooling systems cool buildings to refrigerator levels. Not only is it uncomfortable, but it's wasteful. Also, hall lights in residence halls are on 24/7. Perhaps they could be dimmed during the night or have sensors to turn lights offf when hallways are empty for extended periods of time. The plastic utensils used in ferris are wasteful, but I'm not sure if cutlery is any more energy efficient. But temperature control of buildings should be your priority, in my opinion. 40% of America's energy is spent regulating the temperature of buildings.

I don't understand why Ferris uses paper plates - it seems so incredibly wasteful.

This campus needs to get serious about food. Why is it that Green Monday in the dining halls are still serving ribs and bacon and eggs and fish and so many dairy products? Why can't they follow the actual model of Green Monday and commit seriously to meat reduction? It's frustrating to get conflicting information from dining about what they mean in sustainability. I think it's a failure on their part to educate students about WHY going meatless is necessary to be sustainable. Sure, they're doing a better job of providing options, but the general student body doesn't get the reasoning why they should choose those options. All this obsession with protein and meat and milk and eggs, it's so overdone, and we all need to start learning why this issue is so important. I say start educational initiatives to directly confront sustainability problems with meat and dairy and educate people most importantly on HOW to reduce meat in a way that works for them. Teach people about how protein is readily available in many plant-based foods already served in the dining halls. Show people exactly why Green Monday means meatless Monday.

Have the three types of trash cans in all rooms! It's hard to recycle when you only have one trash can.
62
11/14/2016 23:23:33322
I think there should be more water-bottle filling stations around campus, particularly in Academic buildings. I also generally feel that there is a lack of knowledge about all of the amazing things EcoReps does on campus, and just reminding people to behave a certain way (i.e. more sustainably) will directly remind them of its importance.

Apply existing sustainability initiatives throughout campus (e.g. water efficient toilets, timed lights, etc. Not all buildings have these) Also, expanding composting to all residence halls seems easy enough.
64
11/14/2016 23:44:21233
Composting stations! Even if it's just a few, I think it's really important and a huge step Columbia could make!

compost at dining halls and residence halls! Better sorting of recycling. Updates on heating and AC so that old heaters don't overheat everything in a really wasteful way. Reusable silverware at Ferris (I've heard that's not possible because the dishwashing area is at John Jay, but come on, maybe use compostable plates and then ACTUALLY compost them?)

plastic bag recycling on each floor & more use of renewable energy, such as possibly geothermal heating and solar
