Sustainability Café Examines Deconstruction -- Thursday, March 19

The next Sustainability Café in the spring 2009 series will look at "deconstruction." This Café will be held on Thursday, March 19, from noon to 1:00 p.m. in the Park Center for Business and Sustainable Enterprise, room 301.

When planning a new construction project on a site where an existing structure still stands, the first step to building "green" is to remove that existing structure responsibly, and reuse and recycle any and all useful construction materials and fixtures from it. The term for this planned disassembly of existing buildings is called "deconstruction."

Hans Milberger, deconstruction coordinator, and executive director Diane Cohen, from Finger Lakes Reuse Inc., will discuss this new service that their organization is now offering to our community to ensure that reusable construction materials are kept in service and out of the local landfill.

This Sustainability Café is being held in conjunction with the School of Business Sustainability Committee.

“Teachable edibles" -- seasonal, organic, and/or local foods -- for the spring Sustainability Café series are being supported by Ithaca College Dining Services. Please bring your reusable mug and fill up at the drinking fountain or provide your beverage of choice.

All Sustainability Café events are free and open to the public.

Drink in a new way to think in the Sustainability Café.
