Throughout the week, the Vassar Greens held a series of events to celebrate Earth Week. The theme of the series was “Breaking the Chains that Bind Us,” and explored how one person can help make change. Events included a talk by Lois Gibbs, executive director of the Virginia-based Center for Health, Environment, and Justice, a viewing of a documentary film on the vinyl industry’s environmental impact, and the grand opening of a community garden on Raymond Avenue.
