Space Heater Amnesty Day 2019

over 70 space heaters decommissioned and recycled
January 30, 2019

Thank you to all who participated in Space Heater Amnesty Day 2019. The Penn Sustainability Office was able to decommission and recycle over 70 space heaters (weighing more than 500 pounds) from staff and faculty across campus through eForce Recycling. Staff who traded in their space heaters were offered an energy-efficient alternative: either a CozyToes warming foot mat or a warm desk pad to keep their hands warm through the winter.

Thank you for your commitment to energy conservation, and we look forward to your participation in our upcoming Power Down Challenge from March 18-22. For more information on the Power Down Challenge, please visit this webpage.
