Wake Forest Guest Blogger: Things are iD GREEN!

iD Tech in action

The staff and campers at iD Tech Wake Forest have embraced iD’s green philosophy.  She also explains the importance of conserving energy by habitually turning off computers, monitors, printers and lights that are not in use. We have found that campers are committed to protecting the environment in all areas of their life.
