We at Athlon Sports are all for the environment. We like our parks pristine, our air smog-free, and our water drinkable.
According to the school's press release:
Meet EcoKat, Kansas State University's crusader of conservation and fanatic of fluorescent lightbulbs.
Along with Willie, the pair -- dubbed the EcoEnforcers -- has set out to reduce K-State' s energy usage by 15 percent over the next four years by educating students about what they can do to cut back and conserve.
Beginning this week, EcoKat will show the community how to be more environmentally conscious through appearances, promotional events and a series of online Webisodes.
"Part of my job is to educate the university community on ways they can conserve energy," said Casey Lauer, director of energy and environment. "My idea was to create a video that was a challenge to students -- 'What's one thing you can to do conserve?' Because that one thing multiplied by 24,000 people equals a big change."
