Long and Foster Institute Green Initiatives

Long and Foster Institute, now offers our agents a variety of Green Initiative classes. I have included the link to the Green classes we offer. Our agents can take any one of the Green classes to better serve their clients and themselves.

In our Principles classes we now re-use our mid-term and final exams. Instead of having new exams for students to write on, we ask the student not to write on the exam and we give them an answer key bubble to fill in and we have reduced our consumption of paper significantly.

We are also looking at giving students a CD with quizzes instead of a booklet of quizzes. That will reduce the cost of printing, thus helping the environment.

We have also gone to registering students online instead of sending out a brochure to the students. They can see the classes online and register online which has reduced our postage fees substantially. We also use very little paper since we rarely send out school brochures. The brochure is now on the Website for students to see and we direct them to the web site.

We also ask the students in the class to participate in the building recycling program. We have trash cans marked in the classrooms so they know where to place trash and recyclables.
