lunches, e-waste recycling and a popular plant giveaway are among the
activities planned for UT Arlington’s Earth Day Celebration at 11 a.m.
Wednesday on the University Center Mall.
Students trade recyclables for plants at a previous Earth Day celebration.
Office of Sustainability hosts the celebration. The office has helped launch
several initiatives in recent years – including a bike rental program, low-cost
car sharing and water bottle filling stations. The UT Arlington campus has also
undergone millions of dollars in energy-efficiency upgrades in recent years and
installed electric car charging stations.
Day is a great time to see students’ enthusiasm for incorporating more
sustainable options into their lives,” said Meghna Tare, director of the Office
of Sustainability. “At UT Arlington, we are demonstrating everyday that
embracing sustainability can be cost-effective while benefiting the community.”
