Spring greening: Tip of the week

Mar 31, 2009  

April is Earth Month 2009. As part of the campus' observation, Outlook will post a weekly tip from the Office of Sustainability to help the community take steps to help the environment.

Looking for a guilt-free excuse to revamp your wardrobe? Sunday's clothing swap promises to give your closet a fresh, new feel without contributing to landfill waste or burning a hole in your wallet.

Men and women from across the campus community are encouraged to bring in clean items of clothing to trade from 1 to 3 p.m. on Sunday, April 5, in the basement of United Campus Ministries at 18 North College St.  Participants may also bring in extra T-shirts for a free "Earth Month" screen printing.  There is a $5 suggested donation, and proceeds will benefit ReUse Industries and United Campus Ministries.

The swap is part of Earth Month 2009, a campus-wide effort organized by the Office of Sustainability. 

On Wednesday, be sure to check Outlook to see Environmental and Plant Biology Professor Art Trese and Sustainability Coordinator Sonia Marcus go head-to-head on the issue of carbon offsets. "Carbon offsets: An investment or an excuse?" is the first in a five-part Earth Month series, during which faculty and staff at Ohio University will tackle some controversial issues within the environmental movement.
