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.
