Eco-Mendable Actions: A Conversation with PitE Students


This week on the program, we found some rays of sunshine on a rainy day.  Kadie McShirley and Lindsay, two students from the Program in the Environment, joined us in the studio to share their most recent projects and travels. A degree in sustainability can be challenging — how do they stay positive amidst the barrage of difficult environmental news? Listen!

And as mentioned at the end of the show, help three new farms get started in the Ann Arbor area but participating in the kickstarter campaign Tools to Till Tilian before May 5th. I’m sure we’ll have someone on a future show to tell us all about the Tilian Farm Development Center “farm incubator” project that is just getting launched.

Why do we Waste?


We chatted with UM doctoral student about his year-long experiment to go trash-free. See audio link to show below, and learn about how he managed this experiment, blogged about it, and inspired others in the process! Check out Darshan’s blogsite for his reflections on trash in society.
