First Environmental Science and Policy Program Lunchtime Event!

21 Feb

On Thursday, February 14th, the Environmental Science and Policy Program held a lunchtime event for ES&P/MS&P majors and minors—the first gathering of the semester! We had the opportunity to meet new people in the major, exchange advice about courses at Smith, brainstorm ideas for future ES&P events, eat delicious pizza and apple cider, and embroider cloth napkins!

Utilizing cloth napkins can help reduce generated waste. According to Tree Hugger, a cloth napkin that is washed about 50 times per year will produce 2.5 grams (for linen napkins) to 5 grams (for cotton napkins) of GHG emissions. Conversely, using one paper napkin per day for an entire year would generate 10 grams of GHG emissions.

ES&P/MS&P students: Keep an eye out for emails regarding future lunchtime events, program lectures, and outings!
