While every day is considered Earth Day at environmentally-conscientious MWCC, students, faculty and staff took part in college’s annual Earth Day Celebration this week, in anticipation of the national recognition on April 22.
Coordinated by the office of Student Life, Campus
Activities Team for Students (CATS) and The Green Society student sustainability
club, the event featured live music, free do-it-yourself grow kits, free “going
green” grocery bags, as well as the Green Society’s light bulb, water bottle
and plant sale. Area organizations presenting information included MassRIDES,
Millers Watershed Council, United Water, the Audubon Society, and Solar PV. The
college’s Prius hybrid and Art Professor Thomas Matsuda’s converted grease car
were also on display.
The first Earth Day was celebrated on April 22, 1970, the day the modern environmental movement was born. For more information about ways to celebrate Earth Day and help protect our planet, visit: Earth Day Network
