California State University, Northridge students, staff, faculty and members of the community explored ways to be more sustainable at the annual Earth Fair on April 11.
The annual event, hosted by Associated Students Productions in collaboration with numerous campus partners including CSUN Sustainability, invited the CSUN community to learn how they can help get CSUN to Zero Waste before the “Trashpocalypse.” Fair attendees got the chance to learn about sustainability efforts on and off campus and how to incorporate sustainability into their daily life, while enjoying live music, games and free coffee from the Groundwork Coffee Truck.
This year’s Earth Fair also marked the launch of the #CSUNZero waste reduction campaign. Sunny Squirrel, the hero for CSUN’s new Zero Waste Challenge, was on hand to encourage students and staff to pledge to reduce waste on campus. Students can accept the challenge and learn about ways to be sustainable at the Zero Waste website.
