Earth Day recognition showcases the environmental activities of Menlo Park residents and organizations
Carolyn Dorch, profiled on InMenlo on Earth Day yesterday, isn’t the only environmentally mind person in the Menlo Park area.
Ucan Products founder and CEO Anne Morrissey was spotted at the Farmers’ Market on Sunday espousing the virtues of composting and bringing the companies “untrash” solutions to shoppers.
Others previously profiled for their environmental efforts include, among others:
The Green Team at Las Lomitas School who make every lunch hour a recyle/compost time
Stuart Weiss’s work to reintroduce the Bay Checkerspot Butterfly at Edgewood Park
Encinal School’s Girl Scout Troop involvement with multiple environmental projects
Menlo School and Sacred Heart Prep face off on Earth Day challenge
Vivek Wadhwa’s environmentally-friendly “passive” home
There is, of course, the flip side: Students at M-A choose to recognize Earth Day by showering the M-A Bear with a day’s worth of collected garbage to heighten awareness that we all can do more to spare the Earth.
