While the Brave New Workshop may make fun of sustainability in its new show, "The Brave New Workshop Saves the Planet, or Yes We Can, But Do We Have To?," the comedy troupe is serious about greening its own activities. So reports Gradyon Royce for the Star Tribune. College of Design graduate student group, Greenlight, was brought in to "shake out inefficiencies" in the Brave New Workshop's Minneapolis building. Graduate students Katie Dale and Amber Sausen bartered for improvisational training. "Zero waste was a key principle," writes Royce. "So when office walls were torn down to allow more flexibility and natural light, the studs and paneling were used to build tables and bookcases."
