As the lead of the UW Tower Green Team, Bethany Staelens is always working to find ways to make her work at UW more sustainable.
Staelens, assistant to the vice provost of UW's Continuum College, has helped start UW Tower-wide initiatives such as reducing paper use and closing curtains to lower heating and cooling costs. She's also featured in a UW video highlighting the benefits of reducing paper.
A Husky Green Award winner, Staelens is no stranger to the spotlight. Learn more about her environmental impact at the University of Washington, and how she spends her time away from UW, in The WholeU's Staff Story feature.
