The Sustainability Scoop: A Look Back and a Look Ahead

May 21, 2019

Ayla Dunn-Bieber recaps a year of sustainability, and gives us a taste of what’s to come…

Hello Friends!

Another cycle of our Dirt is coming to a close, making the Sustainability Scoop two years old. We can’t wait to launch Year Three this fall, and dive further into these essential matters.

This year we’ve explored (catch up or revisit below):

Food Waste

Electricity Use

Meat Consumption

Plastic in the Kitchen

Clothing Waste

Did you have an area that particularly resonated with you? What changes have you tried on this year? Any plans for sustainability goals over the summer? I’m currently in the process of testing ice pop flavors for the 400+ fruit ice pops we’ll be making every Friday at camp (no plastic packaging or cardboard boxes here)!

What’s ahead for the Sustainability Scoop:

Next year’s focus will be on practical projects and activities to increase our sustainability efforts, i.e. make you own… you name it!

Read this article for a taste of what’s to come, and for some serious inspiration: The Benefits-and Joy-of ‘Making Do’ With What You Have. It’s all about the mental shift – away from consumption and perfectionism and towards doing all that we can with what we have. We can do it, together!

Have a great summer. We’ll see some of you at camp and the rest of you back here next fall!

And remember…
