WATER WORKS

TAKE SHORTER SHOWERS:

If every resident on campus reduced their showers by one minute, the campus could save an estimated 1,241,000 gallons of water -- about 25,000 bathtubs worth of water!

TURN OFF THE SINK:

When you are brushing your teeth, shaving, or washing your face. This conserves up to 300 gallons per month per person. Over the course of a year, that’s 3,600 gallons of water per person, or 11,556,000 gallons of water in student housing a year. That’s enough water to fill LMU’s Olympic swimming pool over 20 times.

APARTMENTS:

Fill your sink with water to wash dishes instead of leaving the water running.

USE A REUSABLE WATER BOTTLE:

At one of our bottle filling stations.

REPORT LEAKS:

Report leaks to Facilities Management at 310.338.7779.

WASTE WISDOM

PROPERLY DISPOSE OF ALL WASTE:

In our recycle bins located across campus.

REDUCE, REUSE, AND RECYCLE:

Donate what you are not using to those in need, sell it, or hand it off to friends. Recycle all plastics, papers, cardboard, containers, glass, and other single use items, as they are valuable to producing new products.

We anticipate expanding composting to all apartment residents.
