Luther Celebrates Earth Day

Earth Day is a significant environmental movement designed to demonstrate support for the protection of our planet, and is celebrated each year on Apr. 22. 

In honour of this year's theme, "Planet vs. Plastics," Luther encourages our community to participate in initiatives supporting the commitment to see a 60% reduction in the production of all plastics by the year 2040.

Here are some of the ways we are encouraging our staff and faculty to honour and nurture mother earth:
  • Encouraging the commitment to using Zero Plastic Waste by chossing reusable products, supporting businesses that are reducing their plastic footprint and avoiding unnecessary, single-use plastics. 
  • Participating in Zero Paper Day. Look at your documents on the computer, limit printing (or at least print double-sided) and better still: don’t print, send out the electronic versions of these documents. 
  • Choosing active transportation like walking, running, or cycling.
  • Calculating your ecological footprint.
  • Learning more through the Centre for Earth Consciousness and Gender Justice and engaging with valuable Eco-Consciousness Organizations.
