Cindy Kirby has long been a supporter of Sustainable Stanford and a champion of Cardinal Green efforts in her building. With support from teammates Ellen Van Stone and Emily Lauderdale, a number of sustainability initiatives have been realized in Sequoia Hall, including early adoption of the desk-side recycling program and creation of custom signage to help facilitate proper waste sorting. Most recently, the team completed a refrigerator upgrade to significantly reduce that appliance's energy consumption, and scheduled an annual on-site sustainability training for new building occupants.
