Zoo employees have committed to doing five things at work today. These are simple actions that you can take at home too! Today, every Zoo employee will:
1. Turn off lights when they aren't neededThese may sound like small meaningless actions, but we know that they add up to big change. We encourage all employees do them not just today, but every day! The Buffalo Zoo hopes that you'll make small changes too, and encourage your friends and family to do the same. When we all make small changes, we can have a big impact on climate change, and help to protect the arctic ice that polar bears need to survive!
2. Recycle at least one item
3. Use reusable mugs and water bottles instead of purchasing to-go cups or bottled beverages
4. Not idle vehicles
5. Power down computers at the end of the day
