Sustainability Champion of the Month
Wesley Howell, Athletics
Wes has been a valuable advocate for sustainability in the Department of Athletics, Physical Education and Recreation. Last year, Wes coordinated a plug load energy management pilot in recreation center office spaces, which resulted in a 21% reduction in office plug loads in pilot buildings, and received considerable positive feedback from participants. Wes was a key partner in implementing the "Take the Shorter Shower Challenge" in rec center locker rooms, and most recently spearheaded the addition of composting bins in the Arrillaga Center for Sports and Recreation (ACSR). Thanks to Wes, paper towels and food waste can now be collected in compost bins throughout the gym area and restrooms in the ACSR.
