Earth Week

Both Xavier and the city of Cincinnati went green as Earth Day launched this year's Earth Week on Monday. Locally, Earth Day was held Monday at Sawyer Point for its 42nd celebration. The theme was "One Earth, One Cincinnati" and

attendees enjoyed live music throughout the day.

Xavier's celebration of Earth Week has been an annual event and this year the Sustainability Committee has big plans. The Sustainability Committee is a University committee composed of faculty, staff and students. Senior Taylor Mauro, senior John Herrick, junior Elle Ross and sophomore [blah] are the student interns for the Sustainability Committee and have been vital in the planning of Earth Week. "I am happy that Earth Week is finally something students talk about. It's a great way to get the word out on sustainability and show students it's something they should care about,"

senior Taylor Mauro said. On Monday the Sustainability Committee hosted a launch party above the Hoff Dining Complex and showed "Wasteland" in Kennedy Auditorium.

Tuesday the Sustainability Committee took students to the Rumpke Landfill at 1 p.m. and completed a composting demonstration at the NEXUS garden at 3 p.m. On Wednesday, they are hosting a community trash pick-up from 11 a.m. - 12 p.m. and the SustainabiliTEA discussion from 4 to 6 p.m. in Kennedy Auditorium. Thursday, the committee is hosting a "Taste of Xavier" on the Xavier Yard from 12-3 p.m., followed by a collaboration with Student Activities Council for a 10 p.m. Late Night Snack featuring Melt sandwiches.
