Did you know that SOU has a bioswale? A bioswale is a biofilter that collects and removes pollutants from a parking lot using natural elements similar to the way a wetland purifies water. Plants, rocks, soil, and microscopic organisms filter pollutants out of the water before it enters our streams.
Did you know that recycling is one of the easiest and most accessible ways for you to reduce your carbon footprint? According to the EPA, recycling provides an annual benefit of 49.7 million metric tons of carbon equivalent emissions reduced!
