Being Green, Saves Green

Here is a wonderful article over at Treehugger about how some elementary students helped the environment, and saved their school about $800 a month. This is great, because the students can see the positive effect they are having. Even the littlest bit counts. And if $800 doesn't seem like enough to some people, I will be more than happy to take it off their hands for them.

NYU Green Campus Day

NYU has an interesting program going on, its called Campus Move-Out Day, and it feels similar to Art Center's TRUNKsale. It's great to see parallel thoughts popping up in campuses around the nation. There is a larger explanation of Campus Move-Out Day at Treehugger. Also information directly from NYU here and here (pdf files).
