Green Drinks Event to Honor UCSB for Environmental Leadership

Join LoaTree from 6 to 8 p.m. Wednesday, Feb. 18 at SOhO Restaurant & Music Club, 1221 State St., for the first Santa Barbara Green Drinks event of 2015.

The night is dedicated to honor and celebrate UC Santa Barbara for its recent award as the Greenest Public University in the United States.

Steve Gaines, the dean of the Bren School of Environmental Science & Management, and Mo Lovegreen, director of UCSB Campus Sustainability, will provide a brief overview of the different initiatives and organizations on the UCSB campus that led to this impressive ranking.

The award is based on data collected by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, the Sierra Club and the Princeton Review. The recognition comes as UCSB’s Environmental Studies Department celebrates its 45th year anniversary and the Bren School celebrates its 20th year on campus.

In addition to a brief program, music will be provided by Brengrass, the official band of the Bren School. InterVals, the newest coed a cappella group at UCSB, will also grace the stage with their upbeat and new-age mixes. Drinks for $5 and appetizers will be served throughout the night.

While Green Drinks is a free event running from 6 to 8 p.m. The door will start charging $10 at 8 p.m. as HELO, a Santa Barbara based folk/rock trio, takes the stage. All proceeds raised will be donated to Sprout Up, a local nonprofit organization that provides environmental and sustainability education to elementary schools free of charge.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
