FIVE WAYS TO BE MORE SUSTAINABLE

Living a more sustainable life has become second nature in some respects, but there are countless opportunities to help reduce waste, conserve resources and even save money in the process. Here are five ways you can live a more sustainable life:

1. Recycle: For most people, recycling glass, plastic and paper is part of the daily routine. But you can also recycle lots of other things from batteries and appliances to bulbs and CDs. Check out Green America’s “21 Things You Didn’t Know You Can Recycle” list.

2. Reuse: Many items – from wine bottle corks to old furniture and clothing – can be reused and repurposed. Upcycling is fun and creates “new” items to add to your home and garden.

3. Compost: If you have a yard, composting is a great way to reduce landfill waste while creating nutrients for your soil. How it works is that you mix kitchen scraps and garden waste. When it’s ready, you can add it to garden soil as a natural fertilizer. It can even help with water retention!

4. Be water wise: The United Nations reports that water scarcity is among the main problems faced by many societies today, and it’s a problem that will continue to grow as the world population rises. There are many things you can do at home to save water, such as planting native landscaping, catching rainwater for watering plants, using low-flow shower heads and toilets, and more. You’ll also save on your water bill.

5. Conserve: Sure, everyone knows to switch off those lights when they leave the room, but there are literally hundreds of other ways to conserve energy and save money in the process. From using Energy Star appliances to making sure your home is shored up with insulation, proper seals and energy-efficient windows, check out the Energy Saver resource link for many more ways to conserve energy.

Living more sustainably isn’t about sacrifices. Easy adjustments to your daily habits can make a world of difference to the environment and your pocket book!

VIDEO CLASSES NOW OFFERED
BEGINNING FALL QUARTER 2015!

You are invited to explore the exciting world of video at Skagit Valley College!

The MIT Department has established two new online classes to improve your skills in digital videography and video editing through Adobe Premiere Pro CC. MIT-227 and MIT-212 will give you excellent hands-on experience.

Learn how to create scripts, shot lists and storyboards. Discover how to capture and edit entertaining, well-focused video. Become a pro with Premiere Pro CC, and learn how to create a masterpiece with this powerful non-linear editing system.

 

A 30-credit Digital Video Certificate is also offered for those of you who are interested. Students must maintain a 2.0 grade point average and complete the following: MIT 125, 199, 212, 213, 226, 227, 280, and SOSC 113. This certificate is available entirely online.

You don’t have to own or purchase a high-end camcorder for the Digital Videography class. Do you have a cell phone or mobile device that takes video? How about a point-and-shoot camera? Many DSLR cameras take excellent video. Do you have a pocket-size Flip camera stored away? MIT-227 is more about the craft than the equipment, so these devices are all acceptable.

Many of you already have access to Premiere Pro CC as part of your Adobe Cloud subscription; and this would be a great opportunity to learn how to operate this software like a master.

QUIET ON THE SET — ACTION!
