Other conservation practices at LBJ Middle School

LadyBird_0255_small.jpgIn addition to using renewable forms of energy, LBJ MS also features these energy saving and recycling elements:

  • LED (light emitting diode) lighting with light shelves
  • Use of the day’s natural light (daylighting) to illuminate interior spaces
  • High efficiency window glazing
  • Wall and roof insulation to provide the building with a tight wrap which cuts down on energy use
  • Use of a water cistern container to recycle/reuse what’s called “gray water” or water that’s been used once already. Gray water is used to irrigate the school’s grounds
  • Composting of waste from the school’s cafeteria
  • ENERGY Star rated appliances/equipment in the cafeteria
