University Thinks the Right Font Could Help Save the Earth
Condensed by Native Village

Wisconsin: The University of Wisconsin-Green Bay has switched the font it uses in emails. The school says that printing out documents in Century Gothic rather than its old font, Arial, uses 30% less ink.

The move is part of the school's five-year plan to go green -- and save money. Printer ink costs about $10,000 per gallon.

Selling your college as environmentally hip is the new thing. A Princeton Review survey found that 68% of students are interested in schools which are environmentally friendly.  26% of students say it "very much" impacts their decision to apply or attend.

The Princeton Review ranks colleges in order of green-friendliness based on: Whether the school's students have a campus quality of life that is healthy and sustainable; How well the school prepares students for employment and citizenship in our environmental challenged world; The school's overall commitment to environmental issues.
