Online Education Helps Reduce Carbon Footprint

Apr 22 2010

Those who receive online education degrees are helping reduce carbon footprint this Earth Day

Chicago, IL - American College of Education offers master's degree and online-accredited programs for educators and administrators seeking to expand their knowledge, enhance their earning potential and grow their career while contributing to conservation of natural resources.

Students seeking a master's degree program online reduce their carbon footprint by:

  • Not driving back and forth to campus, thus reducing air pollution and fuel consumption
  • Utilizing electronic communications for research, papers, books and more, thus reducing paper consumption and associated emissions with shipping of products
  • Growing understanding and education for using educational technology locally


According to the Environmental Protection Agency, Earth Day is about learning, teaching and sharing. For educators who return to school online for an education degree, accredited degree programs deliver on all three ideas. American College of Education can help educators think green and teach by example.
