Gearing up for Earth Day...

The declining state of our planet isn't news to anyone, but some recent articles and websites (just in time for Earth Day) offer promising ideas:

Real fake meat? It's possible-- see the NYT article and New Harvest
• The Small Planet Institute jsut launched a new website, Take a Bite out of Climate Change
• Going to San Francisco anytime soon? Slow Food Nation is in the works...
Attention Michael Pollan fan club!

Don't forget all the fantastic Earth Day events that are happening right here on BU's campus: Earth Day on Marsh Plaza, Picnic for the Planet (co-sponsored by ESO and SFBU), a screening of King Corn, and a presentation by Food Not Bombs co-founder Keith McHenry (at 3pm in SAR 102).

PLUS Dining Services is holding special events in the dining halls each day/night! In addition to going trayless all week long, here is what's going on:

Monday: "Awareness Day," with information on how much BU recycles and composts
Tuesday: New England cheeses at dinner
Wednesday: Coastal New England seafood
Thursday: All-organic salad bar
Friday: Local poultry and beef

Check back soon for Earth Day wrap-ups...and FYI, our last meeting of the year will be Tuesday April 29th at 7:30pm in the GSU Back Court.
