Eco-Friendly John Tyler

Hey guys! We know that being eco-friendly is very important to the majority of you. So, here is another post about how John Tyler is making great efforts to be as eco-friendly as possible. You can find these two in the library at the Midlothian campus. Take a look:

"The plants outside these window are more than beautiful - they are hard working."

Native plants are more efficient at absorbing and filtering storm water runoff. And, because they require minimal water and maintenance, water consumption association with irrigation is reduced by 87% annually, saving 3,513,159 gallons of drinkable water.

Large windows throughout the building allow natural light to stream in, minimizing the need for artificial lighting and reducing energy consumption. If the light gets to be too bright, motorized light-filtering sunshades are provided.

Pretty cool, right!
