Going Green

 

Welcome to the green page, where it is our goal to make the 2013 Engineering Expo as environmentally friendly as possible!

Every year, the United States emits billions of tons of carbon emissions into the atmosphere. With each passing year, the energy we use to propel our cars, heat our homes, and even watch TV, adds to the billions of tons of greenhouse gases we spew into our atmosphere and contribute to global warming and poisons the air we breathe.

Clearly our current course is unsustainable, and that is why the 2013 Engineering Expo has endeavored to raise awareness and take measures such as expanding recycling operations, composting, and cutting energy use in order to reduce our carbon footprint and inform others on how to reduce theirs as well. 

If you are interested in learning more about how the 2013 Engineer Expo is reducing its carbon footprint or are interested in volunteering, please feel free to email us at green@engineeringexpo.wisc.edu
