On Thursday, October 22, 2015, Earth Day’s half birthday, the University of Tennessee Office of Sustainability will be participating in Campus Sustainability Day! Since 2002, campuses nationally have celebrated a day in honor of sustainability every October and in the intervening years it has gained widespread support from environmental organizations like AASHE and groups like the The New York Times Knowledge Network. UT’s main Sustainability Day event will take place from 12:00-4:00 PM in the HSS Amphitheater. The event will serve as a platform for environmentally minded individuals of UT and the Knoxville area to celebrate sustainability, share ideas for local action, showcase environmental and responsible leadership, and create a marketplace for local and purposeful commerce. Vendors and exhibitors from around the Knoxville area will be participating with lots of exciting products, information, and games, so don’t miss out!
