    Walking the walk

    The theme of this year’s Green Week, hosted by the city of Oxford and University of Mississippi, is “walk the walk,” which is well suited for one of the main concepts in Sustainability: Transportation. Sustainable living, as defined by the Earth Policy Institute, is “shifting to a renewable energy-based, reuse/recycle economy with a diversified transport system.”
    A challenge to all community members this week comes from the Green Week pledge drive at the Student Union. Members of Oxford, Lafayette County and the university are encouraged to pledge to use an alternative means of transportation at least one day a week. While this could include biking or walking to work or using the OUT bus, it could also mean sharing a ride to work with someone else.

            Eating green means more than just veggies

            GREEN WEEK 2010The idea of going green has been a growing trend in the nation for years but the larger concept, sustainable living, actually focuses on more than just recycling or changing to more efficient lightbulbs. Focusing on transportation, energy consumption and diet, sustainable living can be a major philosophical life change for people.
            The City of Oxford and University of Mississippi, in hosting Green Week beginning today through Friday, hope to introduce the community to small steps to begin leading a sustainable life.

                    For the second annual green week in Oxford April 19-23, organizers wanted to do more than educate citizens on the issues; they want to reach out and get people involved.
