Earth Day Celebration!

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
