Athens is thinking green
(2007-10-22)
(WOUB) - Thanks in no small part to Al Gore and his new Nobel Prize, more people are thinking green.

You may be asking yourself, what can I do to support the environment?

Well, for one thing, you can patronize green businesses and bolster green organizations...and that's where Sam Pepple comes in.

Pepple is a student at Ohio University and he's put together the Athens Green Guide.

The Village Bakery is featured in the guide because it supports sustainable local producers.

The guide also includes the Hockhocking Adena Bikeway and organic farms in the area.

The Athens Green Guide can be picked up at O-U's Office of Sustainability...which helped Pepple with the project.

It's also available at the office's website.

Pepple says look for new versions of the map in the future as he gets feedback from the public.
