Drying clothes outside is a way to live more sustainably, according to Beverly Edwards who was a part of Jess Gerrior’s Campus Sustainability Day panel on Wednesday October 23.

The event was organized by Voices Sustainability 101, which is made up of students from the Pierce Media Group. Senior Chloe Rodriguez, who heads the group, said, “I think it’s important for students to learn about how to live more sustainably, and I’m glad we could bring these speakers to our campus.”

Gerrior was joined by Antioch University grad student Meagan Kennedy and Edwards, the head of Wilton recycling program, who talked about  and what people can do live in an environmentally friendly manner.

“You can start by setting up a table and handing out material with good information,” said Edwards. “Little steps are not too little to make a difference,”

Kennedy is involved with the Keene Community Garden Connections which is an effort to help build local areas to grow food and address issues with food due to climate change “We build garden beds and maintain them by teaching others how to take care of it,” said Kennedy.

Edwards said, “Go to people and show them what you can do, rather then lecture them on what it is. If you have it in your heart, it’s amazing what can happen.”
