Happy St. Patrick's Day

Happy St. Patrick's Day! In the words of veteran Canadian rocker, Randy Bachman, today is a great day to "think and do something green!" Here are a few quick tips on making your love of all things Irish a little more environmentally friendly!

  • Try refilling your mug instead of starting a fresh one with each pint. Less washing means less water usage and less energy for heating the water.
  • Recycle your empties!
  • Buy a quality shamrock hat or similar accessory so that you can save it and use again next year! Cheap plastic dodads only end up in the landfill.
  • Avoid the need for a designated driver AND save on gas - take mass transit to wherever you gather for the party.
Obviously, since I work on a university campus, I see the plans for tonight's revelry include a lot of consumption and Halifax is a heavy drinking town at times. There are other things you can do that will kick start your green spring and today's a great day to do it!
  • start an herb garden... the days are finally long enough to get those seeds started in a nice South-facing window
  • take virtual tour of Ireland - how about this one at Class Brain.
  • Help make me some green for my future projects... visit our sponsors!
