Abstract: This article summarizes a presentation given at the Amigos Library Services Going Green 2 online conference in November 2010. Embedding green messages within your work, tasks, programs, tools, and teaching will passively or subtly inform others without being forceful. My library at the University of North Carolina at Greensboro recently completed a large ten module research tutorial covering concepts from forming a topic to citing sources. By embedding the theme of recycling throughout the entire tutorial, users become more environmentally literate. This brief article discusses the tutorial project and the usefulness of embedding messages within other academic areas, instruction, projects or activities.
