Classes are back in session and now that everyone’s back in town it’s time to start planning Planeteer events for the Fall.
The goal of the group is to create local programs and activities to encourage the personal responsibility of everyone to create a cleaner, healthier and sustainable world.
Last Spring, the group worked with Oceana to host a “Stop the Drill” campaign promoting offshore wind energy and plan to work with Oceana again this fall.
We’re looking for new students (and even interested community members) to build our group of planetary stewards.

An interesting little article on “NewspaperWood” — Great idea!
For over a year now we’ve been writing about newspaper bags along with the people and organizations who work with them. We’ve also written about how newspapers are used in other forms of recycling. I have recently come upon an additional “closed loop” use for this ubiquitous material.
Dutch designer Mieke Meijer in collaboration with design label Vij5 has created a product called NewspaperWood. The material has the potential to put a portion of newspaper discarded daily into an up-cycle system bringing paper closer to the wood from which it’s made.
