Catnip: not just for cats!

Raise your hand if you have a cat. Raise your hand if you’ve heard of catnip. Raise your hand if you’ve seen cats go crazy for catnip. Raise your hand if you knew that catnip induces a high in cats. Raise your hand if you knew that catnip can be used in various ways for humans, too.

Okay, if you raised your hand to one or all of these, you’re a genius or have a very good handle of the Google or Bing search engines. If one or multiple statements had you scratching your head, instead of raising your hand, then you’re not alone. In today’s Cascadia Cornucopia video, Adrian highlights this cat euphoria-inducing plant, and a few ways humans can enjoy its existence, as well, all-be-it a little more mundane. That is to say, unlike our feline counterparts, we won’t see students or faculty rolling around with glee in the Cornucopia’s catnip.

Green Tip: catnip can be dried and used in tea to calm upset stomachs. Snip a bit today for your furry feline, or for yourself!

Now trending … innovations in technology and culture shifts take sustainability to the next level!

What do integrated analytics platforms, a Sharing City, smartphones, organic refuse and conscious capitalists have in common?  They all play a role in creating a more sustainable world.

Take the first step toward your career in sustainability today. There is still time to join the Fall 2015 Cohorts of Cascadia’s Bachelor of Applied Science in Sustainable Practices and AAS-T in Environmental Technology and Sustainable Practices degrees.
