Help Plan a Green Summer

April 21, 2010 at 6:26 pm Leave a comment

10 more days of classes, another week of final exams, and maybe even a graduation ceremony, still to go. Summer sure seems like a long ways off, but that doesn’t mean we can’t start planning.

Do you have any green plans for your summer? Maybe you’ll be involved with a research project? Or working for a business or lab that operates in an environmentally-sensitive manner? Or checking out green projects in your home town? Maybe you’ll be teaching a cousin how to ride a bicycle or growing vegetables in your yard? Perhaps you have some green books or articles or movies that you’ve been saving for summer? Whatever your green plans are, share your ideas with me by emailing Alan (or add a comment to this post).

I’ll list all of the ideas that I receive here. Just to get the ball rolling, I’ll list a couple of things that I know I will be doing. (FYI – if your plans are the same as mine, PLEASE share them. I’d like to see which activities are the most popular.)

Plans for a Green Summer

  • Getting out of my car and on to my bicycle – Alan
  • Reading “Small is Beautiful: Economics As If People Mattered” by E.F. Schumacher – Alan
  • Replacing our kitchen’s floor (contains asbestos) with a bamboo floor – Alan
  • Growing (some of) my own vegetables – Alan
