Saving energy at MUSC over the Holidays!

Energy Text List

post the checklist on the door as a reminder!

The holiday season doesn’t have to be the most wasteful time of the year! According to a recent EPA report  Americans generated 2.5% more waste in 2010 than in 2009 to a frightful 4.43 pounds of garbage per person per day: go to for an interesting interpretation of that new statistic!

Zero Waste in 2012? that is an ambitious goal but how about less waste in 2012? My goal is to reduce my waste by 25% which I estimate at 3-20# bags per week = 2.85lbs per person per day in the Davila household. So next Tuesday before you put your garbage can on the curb, weight it! Then you can set your New Year resolution for 2012!

Please have a safe, joy-full and thrifty Christmas and may you reduce your waste in 2012!
