Harvard Real Estate held its very first Green Your Work Scene ice cream social last week outside on the Holyoke Center Plaza. The flavor-of-the-day? Community engagement! Over 330 employees spent their break enjoying the beatuiful weather and locally-made ice cream all while learning new ways to green their work spaces.
The event featured informative tables hosted by the Office for Sustainability, CommuterChoice, Recycling and Waste Services, Harvard Real Estate, and the Cambridge Water Department. Participants completed scorecards by visiting each table and identify new actions they will take to save energy at their desks, get involved in campus-wide green initiatives, go car-free, and reduce bottled water consumption. Highlights from the event include; the Saving Energy @ Your Desk Challenge, Rob Gogan's Recycling Quiz, OFS Green Office Sign-up, access to fun upcoming events and discounts through CommuterChoice, infotmative data on Cambridge's water quality, and the biggest rubberband ball found on campus!
