No Impact Week!

Hey Everyone!
            This Sunday is the kick-off of Green Club's Annual No Impact Week!  Based off of the movie No Impact Man, No Impact Week is a week-long environmental challenge with the a goal of having as small of a carbon footprint as possible. Its the time to go extreme and in the end hopefully you'll learn that a few changes in your daily routine have no impact on your quality of life, but a huge one on the quality of the environment.  To make this already sweet week even better, we're hosting an event nearly everyday!
They are:
Sunday- Start Your List!
             Monday 8PM, Jones 102-Screening of “No Impact Man”
             Tuesday 7:30PM, Leadership Lounge- Shirt Silk-Screening and BOSS Upcycling
             Wednesday 7:30PM, Hebert 210- Green Panel, come talk to Eco-Professionals
             Thursday 4PM- Guided Nature Walk
             Friday 3PM- Picnic in the Park
             Saturday- Volunteer with Green Light New Orleans
