How she contributes to the “Go Green” initiative: “I help the ‘Go Green’ initiative by setting up my apartment with things that help use less energy. I got a power surge protector that shuts off all of the things plugged into it when the main component is turned off, which would be my TV. I also use a re-packable lunchbox rather than using paper bags or disposable bags, as well as using silverware and Tupperware rather than disposable supplies.”
