The Case Against CAFOs in Indiana

There are already far too many protections and allowances for the many CAFO’s in our state.  A CAFO was proposed 2 years ago in Lakeville and our community rejected it.  The CAFO would have released liquid manure into near surface groundwater.  When stormwater reaches high levels in areas of near surface groundwater, karst, or other fragile lands,  existing IDEM rules mandating manure lagoons to contain the waste are NOT adequate and the waste can overflow into nearby surface waters or groundwater. Methane emissions are huge from CAFO’s.  A major contributor to climate change, methane is several times more of a concern than fossil fuel emissions....

First Green Tip for January, 2015

BUY RECYCLED PAPER PRODUCTS, such as greeting cards, paper plates, paper towels, computer paper, envelopes, gift wrapping, etc. It’s good that we all recycle our waste paper, but if there’s no market for the recycled product the system won’t work. Besides, using recycled paper products vastly reduces the amount of trees that are destroyed, and trees are crucial for absorbing CO2 from the atmosphere. Forests around the world are being decimated at a prodigious rate. “If every household in the U.S. replaced just one package of 40 paper plates made from virgin fiber with 100% recycled ones, we could save...

Climate Clues

You can’t tell anything about the climate by just looking out your window at the conditions in your backyard.  Likewise you can’t tell anything about the global climate by looking only at the conditions in Indiana. Jeff Dukes, Purdue professor and director of the university’s Climate Change Research Center, tells how 2014 was relatively cool in Indiana but other parts of the United States were clearly warmer in 2014 and globally it was one of the warmest years on record. Check the Indiana Public Media website for the full article.  Submitted by: Dick Sprague Regional Coordinator Anderson

The Butler Way Guides Butler University to Substantial Sustainable Changes

On April 16th, 2012 Butler University President, James Danko, signed the American College & University Presidents’ Climate Commitment (ACUPCC) in reflection of The Butler Way – Butler’s “long-standing commitment to selflessness and integrity.” The ACUPCC commitments are mapped out in the Butler Sustainability and Climate Action Plan (BUSCA) as a guideline as it grows and implements its new strategic plan, Butler 2020.

Dry cleaning while greening

Renee,

So, what dry cleaner can I use now?

Chris

Chris,

OK, so this question wasn’t actually emailed to me. It was asked directly by my husband while planning his attire for a wedding.

There are a handful of “green” dry cleaning options out there these days, but you [...]

Treecycling recap

Happy 2015, Folks! Now that we’re closer to Groundhog Day than Christmas, I thought it’s about time I offer up a tree-cap of #TreecyclingIndy.

For starters, THANK YOU to all who donated to the gofundme campaign. We raised almost exactly enough money to cover the expenses associated with the program. [...]

Thanks,

Mike

If I could illustrate me answering this question, it would look like a Calvin and [...]
