March 28, 2018

On Saturday, March 24 we joined millions of people around the world in powering down lights and non-essential electronics for Earth Hour 2018 from 8:30-9:30 PM.

And we couldn’t have done it without your help! Many of our RRC community helped by ensuring that lights were turned off, computers were shut down, and unnecessary electronics were powered down and unplugged before the weekend. Not only that:

106 RRC staff, faculty and students
pledged to participate in Earth Hour at home!

Earth Hour Prize Pack Winner – Lindsay

Thank you to everyone who participated for continuing to show your support for sustainability and for climate action. And congratulations to Lindsay who won the draw for an Earth Hour prize pack.

One way RRC is taking action to reduce our environmental impact is to engage staff, faculty and students in reducing plug load energy consumption.

Stay tuned for announcements coming soon on how you can learn more about what we are planning and how you can share your ideas for reducing energy consumption at the College.
