For Earth Week, Be Simply Sustainable

This week UMD will be celebrating Earth Week with our Simply Sustainable campaign. By showing how easy it is to make sustainable choices, we hope all students, staff, and faculty will join in to clean-up the campus, recycle and compost properly, and make earth-friendly choices.  Here is what you can look forward to next week!

Tuesday April 22nd- It’s Earth Day!  Tell us on Twitter @UMDSustain or our  Facebook page what you are doing to celebrate! We’d love to hear what you are up to.  You can tag us, or use the hashtag  #SimplySustainableUMD

Wednesday April 23rd- Listen to the most recent installment of “Green Visions” on KUMD at 8:15 am. Mike Seymour from the Vice Chancellor’s Front Office will be in the studio.

Then, join us in the Bus Hub for some great Earth related festivities from 10:30 am to 12:30 pm. During the event you’ll have a chance to test your knowledge on recycling for your chance to win awesome prizes from the Office of Sustainability. Take a photo with Champ, or a friend, holding our large inflatable globe- because one person alone can’t save the earth.  Also, the UMD bike to campus program will power-up the Fender Blender to make triple berry smoothies, for only $1.  You will also have the chance to talk to faculty and staff about what UMD is doing to be a more sustainable campus!

Saturday April 26th- Show your dedication to keeping UMD clean by getting up bright and early to join in a campus-wide Clean-Up.  Meet new friends while giving our school some much needed TLC!  We will be cleaning from 8 a.m. to 10 a.m., meet outside the Kirby Bus hub.

End Earth Week on a high note by visiting the Earth Day Gallery Hop!  Several art galleries around Duluth will be hosting free receptions. Tour local galleries and answer trivia questions to be entered in the drawing for a gift from each location (one winner per location).  The 24th Annual Gallery Hop is being held as part of Earth Day week.  There is plenty of free parking at DeWitt Seitz Marketplace, the lot west of the Depot and lot G at
