Green Office Spotlight: EcoNauts

File_002.jpgUC San Diego Sustainability would like to highlight the Housing*Dining*Hospitality (HDH) EcoNauts office for achieving Gold Certification through the Green Office Certification Program. As an office, the EcoNauts have implemented creative ways to be more environmentally conscious. All of the computers in their office are defaulted to use Ecosia, which is a web search engine that donates 80% of its surplus income to non-profit conservation organizations. By simply changing their default search engine, they are able to promote tree planting and conservation efforts. This is an awesome and easy way to promote sustainability in your workspace! In addition, the EcoNauts are an active part of sustainability on campus. They support many programs like Fair Trade certified events, the Tritons Rock Hunger event, weekly trash sorts to divert waste, and move-in/move-out support that makes sure goods are disposed of properly.
