Toren's Tidbits: Who's that Dawg?

You may have met a Malamute at one of our events. These dogs have their own sustainability story - they're from the Washington Alaskan Malamute Adoption League (WAMAL).

WAMAL’s main objective is to rehabilitate and re-home rescued Alaskan Malamutes, help Malamute owners and educate the public about these amazing animals. Their goal is to ensure that every malamute can live the life that they deserve.

Toren's tidbits: It's cherry blossom time!

Have you been to the Quad to see the beautiful cherry trees? If not, now is the time to go because the blossoms are in full bloom and are incredibly beautiful right now - but they won't be around long in their colorful glory.

The iconic trees on the Quad are the Yoshino variety native to japan. The trees debuted at UW in 1939, though they were initially planted in the arboretum, not on the Quad. The trees were relocated to the quad when construction began on highway 520. Good news, every single tree that was relocated survived!  

Toren's Tidbits: An Interview with UW sustainability mascot on Paper reduction

I was fortunate enough to have the privilege of interviewing Sqwatch, our UW Sustainability mascot, and get his thoughts on office paper reduction. He's a busy guy but we were able to chat with him for a few minutes!

Toren: Sqwatch, Thanks so much for joining us today. We’re excited to chat with you about paper reduction since after all, you are a Paper Reduction Pro. So Sqwatch, why should we reduce paper?
