CHAMPAIGN -- A local bank is being recognized for Going Green. Governor Quinn awarded Busey Bank with an Illinois Sustainability Award.

Busey leaders say the key is just small tweaks to day-to-day habits, like turning off computer monitors at the end of the day and setting timers on coffee pots.

Leaders say, in the past year, they've saved nearly 1.5 million gallons of water, recycled about 400,000 pounds of paper and cardboard, plus they've installed 2,000 energy-efficient light bulbs.
