Default Anyone doing anything for Earth Day?

Hi folks,

I was wondering if anyone had any Earth Day plans for their classes? My girlfriend and I are putting together an event on her campus on Sunday, where there will be a second-hand gift exchange, some informational booths, and live music. If it goes well, we're going to plan a larger one for my campus in a month or two (I realize it won't be Earth Day then, but owell).

Oh, and tomorrow were joining the environmental club for some sort of bike ride through the city promoting Earth Day.

Anyone else have any plans?
Dave

Dave,

I have to hold my hand up and admit that I didn't even know that Earth Day existed. Therefore my contribution to it was a big fat nothing.

How did the events go?

They actually went really well! I'm going to put a page up (with materials and pictures) on my website one of these days.

The bike ride was cool. We must have talked to over 500 people. And I'd say about 40 people showed up to the Earth Day event. It went really well. Too many more and it would have been difficult to keep things organized. We're now thinking about adapting it to bring to local junior and senior high schools. In preparation, I just made lyrics for "The 12 Days of Earth Day".

Take care,
Dave

That's cool! I wish that I did something like that but alas I work in loads of places and have to carry the stuff with me. Pity as I'm sure that the kids would have loved to do it. Once I get a full time job then I will be more involved. Right now I'm focusing on working and studying.
