Consume less, live more: Campus marks Earth Week

The campus will celebrate Earth Week with a number of activities, coordinated by the Environmental Action Group.

In the spirit of consuming less, instead of buying new clothes, you can trade some old ones for others at Swapapalooza, from 12:30-4 p.m. today (April 21) in the North Eppler Gym.

On Tuesday (April 22), “The 11th Hour,” a documentary directed and narrated by Leonardo DiCaprio on the global environment crises resulting from human activities, will be shown at 6 p.m. in the Bowen-Thompson Student Union Theater. Following the screening, a panel discussion will be held.

Wednesday brings the Eco-Fair, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. in the Union Oval, featuring green offerings from the community.

Dr. Michael Tamor, manager of sustainable mobility technologies for the Ford Motor Co., will discuss the future of energy-saving automobiles at 6:30 p.m. Thursday (April 24) in the Union Theater.
