Faculty, staff and student viewpoints
"We are caught in an inescapable network of mutuality, tied in a single garment of destiny. Whatever affects one directly, affects all indirectly."
~ Martin Luther King, Jr.
Dr. King was speaking about civil rights, but our mutual connection is a fact that's also preached in the environmental movement: we each affect the earth, and what affects the earth affects us all.
"Sustainability" and "going green" are buzzwords that have shown up everywhere from the evening news to your morning coffee cup, and the truth of how humankind's lifestyle might be inconvenient for the earth leaves some people feeling skeptical or overwhelmed.
But if we see caring for the earth as a way to care for one another, it is then only natural that Drury University has championed this cause. Here five members of the Drury community describe how can lead to change on campus and beyond. Just as each petal is part of a flower's bloom, each member of the Drury community contributes something unique to the whole.
Two faculty, two staff members and a student share their stories of sustainability and show that sometimes, in fact, it can be easy being green. (Don't tell Kermit.)
