Going Green at the
UGA Law Library Deborah Baker, Administrative Associate
Library has recently become part of the campus wide Go Green
Sustainability Initiative. Prior to implementing the program, the UGA
Physical Plant had a meeting with members of the Law School including
the Law Library to introduce and explain the process. This Initiative
seeks to provide for current campus needs without compromising the
needs of the future. Improving indoor air quality, ensuring workplace
safety, using environmentally friendly cleaning agents, and reducing
waste are just a few of the stated goals of the program. The first
phase of Go Green involved flipping all the buildings on the North
Campus to green cleaning. This was especially challenging because the
North Campus is home to many of the oldest buildings on campus. Once
the North Campus is complete, Go Green will move to the South Campus
and eventually on to the entire campus.
The Go Green Initiative involved extensive training and testing of the
cleaning staff as well as changing from using over three hundred
cleaning chemicals down to just three. Using only these three “green
seal” cleaning agents combined with proper cleaning techniques will
maintain a level of cleanliness and air quality in the Library and save
money at the same time. Once all the training and new cleaning
materials were in place, inspectors from the International Sanitary
Supply Association came to certify that the Library and other North
Campus buildings were in compliance with the Cleaning Industry
Management Standard as administered by the International Sanitary
UGA’s new recycling manager, Andrew Lentini, was also in attendance at
the kick off meeting and gave an impassioned plea for the Law School
Community to recycle whenever possible. Our staff asked for additional
containers to recycle bottles and cans and we received them within
days. We have placed the new bottle and can containers on each floor
near our paper recycling bins for your convenience. We are doing our
part to facilitate recycling by making it convenient; please help us
reduce waste and recycle whenever possible. Think before you toss
something away as the item you no longer need may be of use to someone
else. If you have any suggestions for us to improve our recycling
efforts please let us know.
