MHC Goes Green With Eco-Themed Events

Wednesday, October 24, 2012 - 12:00

To celebrate National Campus Sustainability Day, members of the Mount Holyoke College community will be gathering in Blanchard Campus Center today to showcase their contributions toward making the College eco-friendly.

From 4:15 pm to 5:30 pm, representatives from College offices such as Environmental Stewardship and Facilities Management will join students on Blanchard’s second-floor lounge area to show videos, make demonstrations, and provide tips on how to help keep MHC green. Later in the evening, the student groups Food Justice Society and Eco-Reps are sponsoring an “Eco-Jeopardy” game, hosted by environmental studies chair Tim Farnham, in the Blanchard Great Room.

Wednesday’s events are part of the College’s Sustainability Week, made up of various academic, informational, and recreational events that celebrate responsible environmental stewardship.
