My Adventure to the Ben and Jerry's Offices.

As I've mentioned here before, I'm involved in the sustainability club on campus called Green Up.

(Here are some Green Up-related posts I've done).

So this April, Green Up will be having it's annual Earth Week, which is a week of events with speakers, an Earth Festival and other activities to raise and maintain awareness of environmental issues and concerns on campus. Right now, we're in the middle of a Bottle-Free SMC campaign to remove the sale of disposable bottled water on campus, which was just approved by the Student Association. Then it just has to pass through the administration, and we'll be bottle-free!

Another cool part of Earth Week is that every year Ben and Jerry's donates empty pints which are used for potting plants during Earth Fest. So in preparation for this, I went to the Ben and Jerry's offices with a fellow Green-Upper and a friend to pick up the pints. In a few words; these offices are the coolest ever.

Old ice cream-makers and a "Cleaner Greener Freezer" filled with ice cream.

Yup. That thing on the left is a slide.

Needless to say it was a cool adventure, and the lady at the front desk said we could take an ice cream sample (so cool!).

Thanks for reading!
