She said about 25 groups
showed up for the booths and many
students had been stopping to try
the organic foods from Open Har
vest grocery store.
Open Harvest Natural Foods
grocery store set up a grill to pre
pare Boca burgers — a brand of
imitation hamburger patties made
from soybeans — and sell them
along with cookies or organically
grown fruit.
Nearly everything sold lat the
booth was vegan, which means it
contained no animal products of
any kind, Jean Helms said. Helms
works in the bakery of the store and
says the store tries to do its part
every day to help the environment.
“Most of the stuff we sell in the
store is organic,” she said. “As far

“A lot of people are out there
eating healthy even if they don’t
completely become vegetarians,”
Helms said. “So a lot of new people
are coming into the store, especially
to try the organic produce.”
Samples of an algae drink from

opinions to members of the Legis
Lisa Williams of Ecology Now
said report cards on the different
representatives were set up so stu
dents could see how their represen

“We have about a hundred let
ters so far," she said.ft'We expect to
get about three times that much by
the end of the day. We got a lot of
letters yesterday in Omaha."

gathering took place in Omaha, she
“This is what Earth Day has been
about — educating people about
what’s going on,” Williams said.
Along with the education pro
cess that was involved in the cel
ebration of Earth Day, this 26th
annual event was observed with a
special skit about the importance of
recycling on the university campus.
Members of Ecology Now and
the Environmental Resource Cen
ter constructed a Chinese-style
dragon made of trash. It was de
stroyed by a “green knight," who
visited UNL to spread his message
about recycling.
