Take shorter showers
The average shower uses 20 gallons of water! Try shaving a few minutes off yours to save water, and the energy used to heat it.

Walk, bike, or opt for public transit
It's good for the environment and your health! Bicycle storage and racks can be found campus. Harvard also sponsors 12 Hubway bike share stations (and offers a discount), and the Harvard Shuttle is tracked in real time and takes you around campus.
