Pi Day!


Pi Day, celebrated on March 14th (3/14), is a mathematical celebration that pays homage to the mathematical constant π (pi), representing the ratio of a circle's circumference to its diameter. While math may not be everyone’s favorite subject, pie sure does make it better!

A Brief History of Pi Day:

Pi Day started with Larry Shaw, who, in 1988, organized the first official celebration at the San Francisco Exploratorium, where he worked. The choice of March 14th was not just a coincidence; it corresponds to the first three digits of pi (3.14). Over the years, Pi Day has grown into a global celebration, bringing together math enthusiasts, educators, and pie lovers alike to indulge in the joy of mathematics and culinary delights. 

The Love for Pies:

Pies have long been associated with comfort, tradition, and celebration. Whether sweet or savory, pies come in diverse flavors and forms, making them a versatile and beloved culinary creation. From apple and pumpkin pies to quiches and shepherd's pies, these baked delights have become an integral part of Pi Day festivities.

Environmental Impact of Pie-Making:

As we indulge in the joy of baking and savoring pies on Pi Day, it's essential to consider the environmental impact associated with pie-making. Here are some aspects to ponder:

Ingredients Sourcing:

Opting for locally sourced, seasonal ingredients reduces the carbon footprint associated with transportation and supports local farmers. Consider using fruits and vegetables that are in season to minimize travel distances and associated emissions. 

Food Waste Reduction:

Mindful planning and portion control can help reduce food waste. Leftover pie crusts, for instance, can be repurposed for smaller treats or frozen for future use. Leftover fruit can also be used for other dishes, as a snack, and are great to freeze for smoothies. By minimizing waste, we can reduce emissions and contribute to a more sustainable food system. 

Energy Efficiency:

Baking pies requires energy, and being mindful of energy consumption is crucial. Using energy efficient appliances is one way to cut down on energy consumption. If you have an electric oven, consider baking during the day when there is more renewable energy available on the grid. You can also try baking during colder times of the day to heat your home and reduce your usage of space heating.

Packaging Choices:

Opt for eco-friendly packaging or reusable containers when storing or sharing pies. This simple switch can significantly reduce the environmental impact and avoid single-use, disposable packaging materials.

Celebrating Pi Day Sustainably:

Host a Sustainable Pi Day Gathering:

Encourage participants to bring pies made with locally sourced ingredients, fostering a sense of community and sustainability.

Plant-Based Pies:

Consider incorporating plant-based and vegan options into your Pi Day menu. Plant-based pies often have a lower environmental impact compared to those that use animal products such milk, eggs, butter, milk, and others.


As we celebrate the joyous occasion of Pi Day, let's savor not only the mathematical wonders of pi but also consider the environmental impact of our pie-making traditions. By making mindful choices in sourcing ingredients, reducing waste, and embracing sustainable practices, we can enjoy a slice of Pi Day that leaves a positive impact on both our taste buds and the planet.
