New CiS action plan takes wind


Working at the California Academy of Sciences, interns have learned a lot about a variety of things, including sustainibility. During one of their usual Monday trainings, they learned what sustanibility means, and how to be sustainable. After that, interns broke off into groups and brainstormed ideas as to how to be sustainable as a program. One idea that kept being brought up was “going paperless” which includes emailing forms electronically rather than using paper. Since then, interns have made many efforts to do so. For example, getting online statements instead of regular pay stubs, and filling out online black out forms. The benefit aside from saving paper is being able to check your earnings statements 24/7 and being more organized with black out forms that are used for scheduling. Other forms of going green that are easy for anyone to do include: getting reusable waterbottles (non-plastic), use public transportation or other earth-friendly methods of transportation, and just turning off lights and any electronics while not in use.
