GREAN meeting minutes from last Monday

Hi everyone!

First, thanks to everyone who helped paint the Bike Co-Op and create the tentative Earth Week schedule last week!!

Please let me know if you can table at all (even a half hour!) tomorrow between 5-6pm or 7-8pm in the UC. I will make a little sign for our table and leave it in the clubhouse under the table with the mailboxes. I was thinking we could have our notepads out if people wanted to buy them: 1/4 sheet ones for $0.50 and the half sheet ones for $1. They are made from PLU’s recycled paper.

This Monday, February 22nd at 7pm in Morken 125 fifteen students from our sister college, Concordia University (Moorhead, MN) are visiting as part of the Justice Journeys alternative spring break program. This year the program is focusing on environmental justice. The goal of their presentation and following informal discussion is to gain ideas and inspiration from each other in order to improve our campuses.

Starting Monday, March 1st, grean will be meeting from 7-7:30pm and the ASPLU Sustainability committee will be meeting from 7:30-8. We are both student environmental groups so combining efforts makes sense. Please stay for both meetings if you can. The goal of this new format is to create focused, concise, and effective meetings with regular attendance for both groups.

Here is some info about the spring Meant to Live program:

Meant to Live is an annual program that helps PLU students think about their passions and their vocation. This year, we have partnered with the division of the Natural Sciences. As a student leader in a club or organization that also fits within the Natural Sciences (be it Biology Club, Chemistry Club, Progress, Delta Iota Chi, Education Society, G.R.E.A.N., Hope Scopes, or RHA) I would like to ask you to inform others about this program and all it has to offer. Just forward this email on to them, or encourage them to visit our website at
