Students call this ‘Sustainability is Sexy Month’
It’s all in the marketing. During the month of April, UW-Green Bay students and student organizations including the SLO Food Alliance, the Dietetics Club and PEAC are engaged in a number of activities and initiatives promoting sustainability here at ECO U. Among them:
• Energy Conservation Contest among residence halls — through April 23, rival halls are competing to see who can most decrease electrical use and waste;
• Weekly “green films” — Organized by the SLO Food Alliance, every Monday in April, at 7 p.m. in the Christie Theatre;
• Fossil Fuel Restricted Diet Week — through April 15, a campaign to get students biking and walking and saving on consumption of fossil fuels, by the Dietetics Club;
• Campus garden planting —Wednesday April 20, 3 p.m., just outside the Union, coordinated by the SLO Food Alliance.
• Critical Bike Mass — Thursday, April 21, 5 p.m., bike-in at the Brown County Courthouse to show support for trails, bike lanes and this form of commuting;
• Student Government Association’s E-Waste Pick Up — the week of April 25-29 in the Union, next to the Corner Store, you may drop off your outdated and broken electronics in the designated bins for free. All electronics will be handled by Lamprecyclers of Green Bay.
