Sustainability Celebration in the Langone Center
With the help of student volunteers and clubs, local businesses and organizations, and Bucknell Dining, the Langone Center was the center of educational displays and sustainability practices throughout the lunch hours.
Bucknell Dining hosted a local foods lunch in Bostwick Cafeteria, along with educational displays and the showing of the webcast, "Solutions for the First 100 Days," about global climate change solutions for the first 100 days of President Obama's new administration. The Terrace Room hosted more educational displays by Bucknell Dining and the Bucknell Environmental Club. The Environmental Club also distributed environmental literacy quizzes with prizes to the winners, sponsored by Bucknell Dining. The Bison and LC Mall were the center of more displays, and the film, “Missing Seeds,” the true story of the banana workers' fight for survival in Nicaragua. The Center Room held an expo of local organizations and businesses, as well as some Bucknell departments, showcasing what they are doing to promote sustainability. Many organizations gave away free items and held drawings to win prizes, and Bucknell Dining gave attendees the opportunity to “Make your own Earth Cookie.”
