Campus Sustainability Day
The 7th annual Campus Sustainability Day took place on October 21st. It's been great watching the year-over-year increase in the number of schools across North America that acknowledge the day and the number who are putting together impressive special events on their campuses. This year, those events ranged from Michigan State University's week-long celebration of sustainability, including an "eco"-focused scavenger hunt and eco-tours of the campus, to Willamette University (in Oregon) giving out mini-grants for campus sustainability projects (such as a community garden and extra bike racks on campus), to Iowa State University offering free bike tune-ups. We're pleased to say that our AusPen refillable dry erase markers are being used on many of the campuses of schools who participated in the Sustainability Day. We look forward to next year and hope we see another significant increase in the number who celebrate the day with special projects and events. Congrats to all those who participated.
