Going Green

I would love to see energy efficient lighting installed that have automatic shut off when no one is in the room or using the facility and then to automatically come on based on motion. This would be quite the cost saver on electricity and thus help our national goals of less reliance on foreign energy. I am also in favor of removing the papertowel dispensers in the bathrooms with an energy efficient drier put in place of them. This would cut down on paper waste and ordering supplies therefore improving the overall budget for unneccessary office supplies. It is a shame to see how much waste we have every day just from a papertowel dispenser. It also reduces the amount of trash that we create everyday and in large offices this could be quite substantial.

I agree to have my idea, not my name or information, posted online. YES
