Congratulations to Washington University in St. Louis for being named a Tree Campus USA by the Arbor Day Foundation!  When I was visiting colleges, I was very impressed by Arizona State, where the whole campus is an arboretum.  Washington University stole my heart though & I feel confident I made the right choice.  I have many fond memories of my time on campus, although quite a bit of it was spent inside the engineering buildings and not laying under a tree.  I am pleased that their commitment to care of their 46 species of trees & engagement of the student body are being recognized!

Earth Day Giveaway – Free Reusable Shopping Bag

I love reusable shopping bags, especially when they are free!  I was very excited to see on Facebook that one store in Denver will be giving away a free reusable shopping bag, recycled from their own billboards, with a purchase today (Earth Day!).  See more about Billboard Ecology, a Denver company that creates these bags here.
