Be a Hero Campaign

Every person can "Be an Everyday Hero" through simple changes in behavior and habits to help save the planet. Help Avila become a "greener" institution by following these guidelines:

  • Turn the water off while brushing your teeth.
  • Turn lights off that you are not using.
  • Use real plates and cups instead of paper and plastic.
  • When printing documents, use double-sided printing.
  • Power down your computer at night.
  • Unplug appliances when not in use - it still uses electricity if its plugged in.
  • Don't buy bottled water - use the water fountains, buy a filter system for your sink or buy a Brita water pitcher for your fridge.
