Slideshow: Bowdoin Students Get a Jump on Earth Day Archives

While Earth Day doesn’t officially arrive until Sunday, April 22, students were out in force Friday to begin the observation early and raise awareness about environmental responsibility. Students tie-dyed reusable lunch bags and baked cookies in a solar oven, and the Yellow Bike Club offered free bike tune-ups. And while digging through other people’s garbage would otherwise have shady, if not unpleasant, undertones, it was enlightening for those watching a trash audit that identified items that could instead be recycled.

Bowdoin is continually environmentally conscious as it pursues carbon neutrality by 2020.
