Not only are the legal minds in our Office of General Counsel brilliant, they are also conscientious. They have shown their commitment to green initiatives through their everyday practices in the office and now with a donation to Green UH. Over 300 binders are up for grabs to students, faculty and staff thanks to the Office of General Counsel.

“In these budgetary and eco-conscious times, throwing them away just wasn’t an option. So, we reached out to Green UH to find them a home,” said Leslie Pruski, Executive Administrative Assistant in the Office of General Counsel.

Green UH will have the binders on hand at the Earth Week Carnival on April 21 in Butler Plaza. Pruski said the binders contained documents, literature and other materials that were no longer needed. They decided to free up the office space by shredding the paper for recycling, leaving the binders available to be given away and reused.

The Office of General Counsel is taking steps to eliminate long term storage by converting paper files to electronic files. They scan all documents, contracts, letters, memos and other documents to decrease the need for paper.

Pruski said all the employees in the office have an interest in recycling as well. A recycling receptacle can be found in the kitchen area as well as at every desk or office.

“Like other offices and departments committed to recycling, we welcome the opportunity to play a vital role in building and maintaining a healthy and beautiful environment for current and future Cougars. One staff member who has a young son frequently says, ‘Thank you for saving the Earth for my son,’ when she sees someone adding to the kitchen recycling bin,” Pruski said.
