It’s All About Being Green!
Earth Day Celebrations ~ April 21 – 25, 2008
Earth Day Fair, Thursday, April 24, 11 a.m – 2 p.m., MIT Stata Center
Kermit the Frog of Sesame Street sang, “It’s not easy being green.” With all
do respect to frogs, it’s easier being green than you think! All you need to do
is learn how.
A great way of learning how to green your life is by attending the festivities at
MIT in celebration of Earth Day. All members of the MIT community as well
as local residents are invited to attend. Throughout the week, MIT will offer
a myriad of events and exhibitions on preventing and reducing solid waste,
composting, environmental sustainability and much more. In addition to the
numerous attractions presented in celebration of Earth Day, student projects
that center around climate change and energy will also be showcased. The
Earth Day Fair will be celebrated on April 24th.
In honor of Earth Day, the Environment, Health and Safety Office would like
to reaffirm its commitment to the Institute’s Environmental, Health and
Safety Policy which states:
“MIT is committed to excellence in environmental, health and safety stewardship
on our campus, in the larger community of which we are a part, and globally.
This long-held commitment is demonstrated through our contributions to
environmental, health and safety research and teaching, as well as through our
institutional conduct.” – Adopted by Academic Council, April 2001
