Congrats to SPU! Seattle City Light recently mailed the school a report of their environmental achievements for the year of 2012. Participating in the company’s green up program, SPU prevented the release of 63767 pounds of carbon dioxide into the atmosphere, added 45400 kilowatt-hours (kWh) of clean energy to the power grid, and had an overall carbon-emissions impact similar to planting 741 tree seedlings. What would the ideal green celebration look like? Perhaps some organic chocolate cake eaten in a circle around a newly planted tree, followed by some dish washing in a nearby river. I’d say SPU deserves this kind of party.
