I knew I could find common ground somewhere between my two seemingly-opposite majors of Electronic Arts and Environmental Policy.  What better than to write a blog about going “green”?  As an assignment for my MSCM 329 Digital Communication class this semester, I aim to share my experiences in the next few weeks about learning to tread more lightly on the Earth, and to shed some light on what “going green” is all about.

We’ve all heard the news about climate change and our addiction to fossil fuels–now what can we do to make a change?  I’ll be focusing on small actions that will make a big difference.

What is sustainability?  How do I compost?  Why recycle?  Can a few people really make a difference?  Next week, I’ll begin diving into these topics and more.  As for the last question, I think Margaret Mead answers it quite well:

“Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world. Indeed, it is the only thing that ever has.”

Next week, I’ll dive in to the many small ways of making a big difference.
