Shrinking Our Carbon Footprint
Here at Housatonic, we are doing our part to reduce our carbon footprint. We’ve gotten rid of Styrofoam plates in the cafeteria, and we’re working on eliminating as much plastic as possible from our wastebaskets by looking at solutions such as metal cutlery and boxed water. We’re also using solar power now to offset our fossil fuel consumption. Click on the image to the left to view real-time data on the energy being generated by our new solar panels!
