University and Oxford Host Third Annual Green Week
Going Local = Going Green was part of the message of the University’s Office of Sustainability and the City of Oxford last week.
From Friday April 15th to Friday April 22nd the University and the City of Oxford took part in the community’s third annual Green Week celebration. The themed celebration is designed to fit the needs of the community every year, so no two week’s have ever been exactly the same. The theme selected for this year’s event was Go Local. Go Local was chosen to encourage students and Oxford residents to start working together to become more self-sufficient.
Green Week is designed to encourage students and city residents to interact with each other and truly develop new ways of doing things to promote the idea of being environmentally friendly. Throughout the week there were events ranging from a Vegetarian Potluck Dinner to a Bike to Campus Day. Every event put on by the Office of Sustainability was geared toward providing students and residents with information about small ways they can go green and in turn help the environment.
