Supervisors and Sustainability

Following Dennis Hart's summary of news from the Ames Tribune, Mark Edwards, 30 year employee of the Department of Natural Resources, came in to explain the development of the process that led to the December 4 meeting of the Story County Board of Supervisors, which was attended by well over 100 people with 40 who testified.  We heard testimony from Margaret Jaynes, director of Story County Environmental Health and Matthew Mardsen, Nevada City Administrator reporting for the Nevada City Council. For the last half of the show Ames and ISU Sustainability Director, Merry Rankin, together with ISU Sustainability Coordinator Steve Kohtz, brought us ideas for sustainable gifts and wrappings, as well as answering the question "Which is more environmentally friendly, fresh or plastic Christmas trees?"
