Feliz Dia de la Tierra! CARNEGIE MELLON RECOGNIZED FOR BEING "GREEN"

...Y El Circulo Juvenil orgulloso de ser parte de todo esto!
...And the Circulo is proud to be a part of it!

This Earth Day (Friday, April 22), Carnegie Mellon has reason to celebrate.
The university has been recognized by The Princeton Review and the U.S.
Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) for its leadership in environmental
research and education and for its sustainability practices, positioning CMU
among the greenest colleges and universities.

CMU will be featured in "The Princeton Review's Guide to 311 Green
Colleges," a free guidebook available for download at
http://www.princetonreview.com/green-guide.aspx that profiles the most
environmentally responsible colleges in the United States and Canada. The
schools included in the guide were chosen based on their
sustainability-related policies, practices and programs. The Princeton
Review cites CMU's robust environmental research programs, commitment to
green design and building, and dedicated Green Practices Committee among the
reasons for the university's inclusion in the listing.
 
The EPA's Green Power Partnership announced that Carnegie Mellon used the
most green power of any school in its athletic conference, the University
Athletic Association.  By purchasing close to 87 million kilowatt hours of
green power, CMU significantly bested its cohorts in the UAA, as well as
most schools in other athletic conferences. Of the participating schools,
only one other, the University of Pennsylvania, purchased more green power
than CMU.
