Green Gallaudet Hosts Earth Day
Green Gallaudet hosted an Earth Day festival on April 22. There was face painting, flower pot decorating, flower planting, bracelet making, and free samples of vegan food. Green Gallaudet is a group of students, faculty, staff, teachers and alumni who want to see a more environmentally friendly Gallaudet and a more sustainable world. Also on that day, Bon Appetit highlighted its Low Carbon Diet program, an ongoing effort by Gallaudet's food service company to follow practices that reduce the impact food can have on climate change. The "low carbon" offerings included pizzas with less cheese, alternatives to beef burgers, and more items that were produced, made or grown within the United States - particularly in the local area.
