Sustainable New Year

By Kelli Swensen, Dietetics Student, Sargent College

For those of you at Boston University welcome back to campus!

First day of class and it couldn’t feel more like winter outside with all this snow. To brighten up you day a bit, we at Sargent Choice Nutrition Center want to get you excited about the upcoming semester!

Upcoming Sustainability events:

1. Make a Difference Mondays are now EVERY WEEK starting Jan 21st! Additionally, the chefs and Sustainability have been working on brand new, delicious menu items for you including Greek spanakorizo and Middle Eastern sabich (blog posts to come on these new items!)

2. Flapjack Fling! This year’s field trip is Saturday February 23rd from 9am-1pm to the Mass Audubon Ipswich River Nature Reserve. As you walk through the maple forest, you’ll get to observe how maple syrup is harvested. After the walk will be a delicious pancake breakfast! Registration opens on Jan 28th! So be sure to sign up here: http://www.bu.edu/dining/about-us/sustainability/mailing-list/

3. In promotion of Recyclemania, there will be a Composting Comes Out event in February in which students will be given fun stickers for reducing waste through composting. Anyone who is interested in volunteering should contact Sabrina at harpers@bu.edu.

Looking forward to seeing you at these events!!
