Green Brownies

Steve Johnson deserved celebrating as he marked his birthday and his departure for Costa Rica. We in the Green Commission are hardly ones to miss a photo-op, or a chance to thank our fearless leader, or to devour a good birthday cake! We're sure the cocoa was sustainably harvested.

Steve Johnson GreenShelf at Clemson City Hall

Our GreenShelf, in the conference room, currently holds some essential reading for the environmentally literate! All are invited to participate. We yearn for a much larger selection, but we're proud of our good start! Come check something out (4 week limit, but keep the materials moving as much as you can) by signing and dating the card in the front of the book, and putting it into the envelope on the wall.

Book donations can be left on the same shelf, marked with the donor's name, and Ellen will check them in with cards and envelopes at the monthly meeting, and add them to this list.

Keep her busy!

The Climate Action Plan was developed by the Green Ribbon Committee, and approved by the City Council of Clemson last year.

The Mayor was in good company!

An organizational start

We want to make a difference in Clemson and surrounding communities.

We'd like to invite input about links, ideas, initiatives, etc. that you'd like to see in Clemson as well as share ideas about how make Clemson the 'greenest college town' in the US - a vision put forth by Mayor Larry Abernathy.

Please join us in making this a reality.
