The Ecological Design Consortium (EDC) is a student organization at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign's School of Architecture established to promote the use and integration of ecological, economical, and equitable design solutions for the built environment.
The main goal of EDC is to educate our members, the university, and the community through discussions, lectures, tours, and hands-on experience in the hopes of creating a healthier and more livable built environment for ourselves and for future generations.

Blackle saves energy because the screen is predominantly black. "Image displayed is primarily a function of the user's color settings and desktop graphics, as well as the color and size of open application windows; a given monitor requires more power to display a white (or light) screen than a black (or dark) screen." Roberson et al, 2002Because of this, the EDC website carries this concept and reminder for all of us to live green.
