Eco-Action is hosting Penn State’s Annual Earth Day Celebration. The event is set for Friday, April 20th, 2012 from 12-5pm on the Hub Lawn as well as events taking place inside. This event is free of charge, and all are welcome to enjoy the little things in life that don’t require energy with their friends!
On the April 20th, Penn State students can expect interactive, and fun ways to become more earth-friendly. Students will be given the chance to learn about what we, as a community, can do to be more sustainable. Eco-Action is going to have a visual representation of plastic bottle waste to bring to light just how much plastic we go through at Penn State, and in the US. Other events during the day that one could expect happening at the hub include acoustic music all throughout the day, outdoor yoga (from 1 to 1:40), an area blocked off with paints and chalk for people to create art, a slack line set up, and of course, free food.
Even if you don’t consider yourself an “environmentalist” or think that Earth Day is a day for hippies, you should come out to the HUB on April 20th and check things out. It’s a day to get people outside to do more than taking a usual nap on the HUB lawn. Many times as students, were stuck in stuffy classrooms or the library for so long that Eco-Action felt the need to bring us some fun on Earth Day. It’s a day they designed for Penn Staters to step away from the computer, and enjoy their friends, and the great happy valley spring weather.
