                  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.
