Earth Week at MU

Thursday, April 12, 2012
It’s spring and time to think about going green! In the run-up to Earth Day on April 22, Marymount is providing a number of ways to be good stewards of the earth. Opportunities include recycling electronics in the Lee Center, getting a reusable cup from the dining hall, and donating clothes and shoes in Butler and Lee-Ostapenko Halls and other campus locations. Peanut butter and jelly sandwiches will also be available at lunch in the Ballston Cafeteria on April 16 and in Bernie’s on April 17. Going meatless at lunch is one way to put less stress on resources like water.

On April 16, the Dollar Dinner at 5 p.m. in the Gerard Lobby will feature Br. Vincent Ferrer, O.P., who will discuss the Christian view of the need to care for the environment.

Then, on April 24, lunch in the Library Board Room while learning about a case study of clothing production and the pitfalls of charitable consumption. The discussion will be presented by Dr. Brian Flanagan, Dr. Kathleen Garces-Foley, and Dr. Doug Seidler.
