Does anyone have any ideas on what my office could do for Earth Day. I want to think of something that we can all get involved in that is not only productive but informative to the office in relation to architecture. A couple ideas would be to go to a dump to see all the waste (essential from concrete and construction) and its negative impact on the surroundings, or to go to a construction site and clean up and recycle materials that would normally be discarded....Any other thoughts?

don't print anything for a day.

and try not to consume anything that'd force you to throw something away. (containers etc.)

Maybe treat it as an anniversary rather than an event. Instead of doing something different for the day, make it the day when you start doing things differently from then on.

bang the drum @ 4:20pm; eat a peach (save the pit & plant it later); think like a primate; and definitely hug trees, friends, and anyone who comes into your view.
