Earth Week 2015

Earth Week 2015 was a big success! The Earth Day Fair was a great event with twenty seven organizations in attendance. Students went around to different booths and enjoyed pedal-powered smoothies, s'mores, free plants, giveaways, and games all the while learning about UNI sustainability and recycling efforts. Around 500 UNI students and faculty attended the Fair at Maucker Union. The RRTTC would like to thank everyone who participated and helped out with Earth Week for the wonderful success! You can view more photos from the event by clicking here.
