Reduce Your Footprint

Reduce Your Footprint

Here are some tips for living greener every day and reducing your own carbon "footprint":

  • Learn Kung Food 
    Check out the quirky series of award winning Green Ninja films that are written and directed by SJSU students and faculty. 
  • Manage your E-Waste
    Anyone can drop off/scavenge any electronic equipment in the e-waste area, located in the Student Union #360 (Top Floor) at 211 South 9th Street, San Jose. Hours are: M-TH 8am-10pm, F-Sat 10am-4pm, Sun 5-10pm, (408) 924-6976.
  • Use Public Transit
    With a Tower ID card and Eco Pass sticker, SJSU students, staff, and faculty can enjoy unlimited rides on all Santa Clara Valley Transportation Authority (VTA) Buses and Light Rail.
  • Find Other Transportation Solutions
    See the SJSU Transportation Solutions website for bike-sharing programs, discount train fares, and other sustainable ways to get around.
  • Break the Bottle Habit
    Use reusable, washable stainless steel or BPA-free plastic water bottles instead of bottled water.
  • Avoid Paper Waste
    Send documents electronically whenever possible. Print double-sided. Create a collection box for usable one-sided scrap paper. Faculty can utilize D2L Learning Management System to share documents online with students rather than in print. Sign up for the Stop Junk Mail San Jose Program to reduce paper waste.
