EarthFest 2019

EarthFest was held on Wednesday, April 17th from 11am – 2pm in the Amphitheater located behind Union Station. The Sustainability Committee reserved a table and placed signage (including a brand new table sign that we can use for future events) and had one of our new multisort recycling fixtures placed beside the table. EarthFest was well attended by students, faculty, and staff. The table also promoted VHS recycling in the library on Monday nights along with a live demo of VHS recycling.
