i have a good reason for the hiatus.

Posted by Diana on October 20, 2008

I am a very busy woman, you see. Busy planning the first ever…..

F A L L E A R T H F E S T I V A L !!!

The festival is being held in honor of National Campus Sustainability Day (say that five times fast). Activities are planned for both campuses. At Lawrenceville, NCSD multi-media events (code for the above) will be taking place in the SRC from 10-2.

NCSD will be celebrated at Westminster on the Great Plains from 10-4 in the form of an old-fashioned country fair with an eco-minded twist.

**Bring your co-mingled recyclables (cans, water bottles, and glass), plastic grocery bags, and clothing donations as tickets to play games!**

Each game will test your green knowledge as well as your carnival skills (don’t worry, no tight rope walking while balancing plates on your head and singing opera–I’m pushing that for next year). There will be food and merriment, accompanied by a focus on responsibility to our local community and our planet.

4-5 PM in Thayer Lounge…

SPECIAL GUEST SPEAKER

TOM SZAKY

co-founder and Chief Executive Officer of TerraCycle, Inc.,
producer of the world’s first products made from and packaged in waste.

you won’t want to miss this guy. promise.

Hope to see you there!!!!

I came upon this while surfing for green things:

Sundance channel is hosting the first television program dedicated entirely to the environment. They’re already on their second season. Lots of great stuff in there. I was particularly interested in the What’s the Big Idea Contest. You can submit a “short film or photo with your big idea to make the world a cleaner, greener place and you could win the ultimate green grand prize.” Check it out!

I also like the eco-mmunity e-cards.  You can play around with the designs and create your own e-cards!

earth day — a classy affair.

Posted by Diana on April 29, 2008

here’s a great big

thank you!!!

to all who helped make

earth day ’08

a smashing success!

  • eight 32-gallon tubs of clothing were collected and sent to a community in need in Haiti
  • four 32-gallon tubs of plastic bottles were collected and sent to be recycled
  • three 32-gallon tubs of plastic grocery bags were collected and sent to be recycled

DUE TO THE REMARKABLY LARGE NUMBER OF PARTICIPANTS, we ran out of reusable bag giveaways within the first half hour! Unfortunately, we do not have any extra. However, i was able to round up 75 extra water bottles for those of you who signed the IOU sheet. If anyone signed up for a reusable bag and didn’t already get a water bottle, I would be happy to give you a bottle instead when you stop by the library (see below for pick-up times).

The winners of the raffle for those informative and hilarious green books are….[drum roll please]

  • Makeda Hampton
  • Cliff Goldberg
  • Dan Richards
  • Elizabeth Stuck
  • Madison James
  • Robin Lucas
  • Jacob Mercer-Pontier
  • Katie Skovira
  • Chris Casciello

*** TO PICK UP YOUR PRIZES AND WATER BOTTLES, please stop by Talbott Library from 1:30-10 on Wed, 8:30-5 on Thu, 3-10 on Sun, 1:30-10 on Mon, or 8:30-5 Tue-Thu (May 6-8)****
