DIY Home Air Filter

With fire season rapidly approaching, we can expect a drastic change in air quality.

DIY Home Air Filter

  • Turn off printers, monitors, PCs, copiers, and other equipment when not in use
  • Turn off all lighting when not in use
  • Inform Operations if you notice any water leaks in restrooms
  • Reuse paper, and don’t print unless necessary
  • Place your waste in the appropriate waste bins
  • Use a reusable water bottle rather than plastic bottles
  • Walk, bike, carpool, or use public transportation whenever possible
