Environmental Impact/Awareness Training

Provide awareness training to mitigate the excessive use of resources. A lot of people are either ignorant or just plain don't care that they are using tons of resources on a daily basis while on the job. It is easy for a government employee to become complacement in regards to their energy use because they never see the bill (except at tax season). Educating and creating a better awareness of environmental impact would go a long way to not only preserving money but also our environment.


We already mandate sexual harrasment, influenza, ethics, suicide prevention, and other worthwhile trainings in the Coast Guard. It is long past due to implement a structured environmental impact/awareness training especially since one of our primary missions is to "protecting marine resources."
