Earth Week 2011 Review

Our week-long celebration of Earth Day has come to a close. As interns it was our pleasure to provide the Ithaca College community with events relating to sustainability and provide "green" giveaways to promote reusable (instead of disposable) container use. In case you missed out, be sure to view the event pictures below!

Veggie Teach-In: We hope everyone enjoyed the all-vegan meal served at the Exhibition station in Terrace Dining Hall on Monday April 18th! We received a lot of positive feedback from students who ordered the meal. In fact, the veggie burgers were gone within a half hour of opening!

This year Carbon Nation was back by popular demand. The documentary discusses a more environmentally friendly approach to doing business, all while raking in more green (and we don't mean the stuff in your front yard). All of the delicious organic and local food was enjoyed by Ithaca College students. Everyone who attended also left with hand-fulls of free giveaways.

Energy Tour: Special Thanks to members of the Energy Initiative Team for leading the tour and Mary-Margaret Cimino for filming it! We look forward to providing you with a behind-the-scenes view of new energy-saving equipment installed over the past 2 years.

Sustainability Pledge: In three hours, over forty students pledged to become more sustainable at our event in the Food Court! We enjoyed 4 large sheet worms and dirt sheet cakes and gave out hundreds of reusable water bottles.
