Ecofest (4/19-23)

Below is a list of events surrounding Ecofest, held April 19-23.

Monday, April 19

Recycle Box Decoration and Distribution, Electronics Recycling

Time/Location: 11 a.m.-2 p.m. on The Commons Terrace

Facilities management is coming to you! Recycling seems to be a burden and an extra step for us to take that we don’t always have time for when trying to be good stewards of our environment. Our goal is to make recycling easy and fun! Bring all your electronics to one location where we will take care of it. You can also pick up a decorated box for your own room to make recycling easier. This is a bin that can be taken out with the trash but emptied into the recycling bins instead of the trash rooms.

SEA and SEB are showing Planet Earth

Time/Location: 9-10 p.m. in the The Commons Sports Zone

Watch one of the most beautiful documentaries created about the Earth we live on. You will experience a small hint of the vast variety of life with which we share our planet.

FREE Store and Plant Sale

Time/Location: 11 a.m.-2 p.m. on The Commons Terrace

SEA is providing you with free stuff! Come to the free store to get what you may want or need. We have collected items that students no longer want and are willing to give away. This is a wonderful way to reuse resources. Instead of purchasing something new, come to our store. At the same time SEA is selling plants and herbs in small cups that you can put on your windowsill. Start your own herb garden!

Time/Location: 4 p.n. at the Albin O. Kuhn Library Gallery

Come out to hear from expert professors in several fields who will discuss the issues of environmental stewardship in their own fields. This is a panel discussion so questions, discussion and debate are encouraged! Come ready to be engaged!

  1. I am so excited for the farmer’s market! This week is going to be great!

  2. These are great activities- thanks for planning.
    I do have a suggestion you may need to pass on. We collect reclylables around our department, but sometimes notice that our cleaning people (who are just great) dump the recycling in with the regular trash. Maybe they need to be communicated to & trained so that it’s clear to all of them exactly what the procedures they should follow with reclycled materials. Thanks!
