From WTNW: Green Houses are the New College Dorms

Lauren Silverman wants us to believe that “Green” Houses are the New College Dorms at our sister blog, “What’s The New What?”

“Green living” isn’t only popular at hippie colleges such as Oberlin. At the University of Michigan in Ann Arbor, where I go to school, some dorms and many cooperatives are taking a shot at sustainable living. A few weeks ago, when I was hanging out at a friend’s cooperative, I was chided for leaving on the bathroom light. My friend yelled, “We’re in an energy saving competition with the other cooperatives!” Compared to college dormitories and apartments, cooperatives are in a prime position to save both energy and money.

Check out all the “New What’s” @ What’s The New What.

  1. Having college kids getting used to living “Green” will help them live “Green” in the future therefore helping reduce our carbon footprint on the earth. But if you want to get some free food while juggling the rising gas prices Jack in the Box has come to the rescue.

    You love those tacos from Jack in the Box, don’t deny it.—the crispy goodness with the melted cheese, hot sauce and crisp lettuce on the inside. With gas becoming more and more expensive, Jack wants to help you fill your stomach. Bring any gas receipt to Jack in the Box next Thursday, June 26th, and get TWO FREE TACOS.
