Weighing in on Our Carbon Footprint
Monday, January 28 - Thursday, January 31 at noon
Red Brix Cafe and Commons
Carbon is the new carb in Food Services! Join the Eco Reps at the Red Brix Café for an enlightening look at the food we consume and the carbon footprint it creates. Check out the movies, art, presentations, freebies, and the CHEFS project!
Food Services with the Sustainability Office joined several other campuses across the nation to calculate carbon footprints. The CHEFS project (CHarting Emissions from Food Services) focused on food-related climate impact—the emissions associated with the production, use, and disposal of campus food-related products. The numbers are in! Find out more about the CHEFS project and how you can help to reduce the campus carbon footprint. Eco Reps will be on hand at noon each day to answer questions and share lots of fun freebies.
Other event highlights include:
- Experience Benjamin Clore’s 3-D art sculpture “Accumulation 30 Days”. His month-long accumulation of take-out food packaging cast in plaster and concrete speaks to both the waste and the weight of food consumption. Artwork will be on display Mon-Thurs. Listen to Benjamin’s presentation Wednesday, January 30 at 12:30pm.
- Watch the film "Ingredients" which unearths the roots of the local food movement and digs into the stories of the chefs, farmers and activists transforming our food system. It’s an upbeat, beautifully-photographed film that introduces us to the verdant farms and pioneering restaurants where good food is produced and served. The film will run continuously through each day.
