Students for Sustainability Holiday Challenge
Students for Sustainability Holiday Challenge

To celebrate the season, the Students for Sustainability (S4S) at St. Mark's created a holiday challenge "to inspire sustainable doing." St. Markers were challenged to take sustainable actions related to the holidays: "including buying, wrapping, making, or reusing." The two most creative entries, declared Dani Ortiz '21 and Lindsay Davis '21—the leaders of S4S this year— would win prizes.

Brooke Farrell '21—a VI Former from Hopkinton, Massachusetts—and Lily Shay-Duran '21—a VI Former from Framingham, Massachusetts—were the winners. Brooke saved energy by not lighting her tree (pictured at left) this year, while Lily saved paper by not wrapping gifts (pictured at right).

In addition, in response to COVID-19, Lily has offered a video tutorial on how to make a mask. "All you need," declares the S4S team, "is some spare fabric, a needle, and thread!"
