Journalist goes zero waste

Journalist goes zero waste

SYDNEY BROWN, Evergreen columnist

August 19, 2019

If you go to the Compton Union Building for food, you probably get a paper box. Employees unwrap plastic bags of food and once you pay, you get a paper receipt, or it’s thrown in the trash. You grab a plastic fork, maybe a plastic knife, get your paper cup and finish it off with a plastic lid and straw....

Pullman is one of those great college towns that require some creative thinking in order to make the most of what’s here. If you’re new here, and especially if you’re like me and have more familiarity with a city, it can be hard to see what’s so special about this tiny quintessential university...

Try knitting for your mental health

Try knitting for your mental health

CHLOE GRUNDMEIER, Evergreen columnist

March 27, 2019

On March 3, I learned to knit. I bought some cheap knitting needles, a skein of blue yarn and spent an hour struggling with my first row. I didn’t suddenly age 40 years nor decide I wanted to follow in my grandmother’s footsteps. I wanted to treat my depression. I was inspired to pick up the...

Letter from the Life editor: quit being fake, assert your humanity

March 18, 2019

Over spring break I had the opportunity to get back to interviewing and writing. I haven’t had the time to report while I’ve been running this section. I couldn’t have been happier. I can barely believe this job exists. I’m studying psychology because I wanted to become a therapist. I think c...
