We asked your friends in the Mudd Library, “What do you do to honor Earth Day?” Here’s what we had to share!
- “Composing, recycling, using/buying less plastic whenever I can, and learning about planting more native plants”
- “Say a mental ‘thank you’ to Gaylord Nelson, the Wisconsin Senator and Governor who founded Earth Day
- “I look for more ways I can incorporate the spirit and practices the movement supports into my own life. Learning about the new and creative ways students here are supporting Earth Day inspires me!”
- “Walk to work!”
- “Earth Day helps me to renew my efforts in using less plastic, becoming better at composting, making my yard more pollinator-friendly, and helps me remember why I don’t eat meat.”
When you’re in the Mudd Library, don’t forget to recycle your clean plastic film and plastic bags and your batteries in library entryway- and be sure to use the single stream recycling receptacles around the building to properly recycle your trash.
Whatever you do, we hope you all have the opportunity to reconnect with nature this Earth Day and Earth Day weekend!
