UH community flocks to Sustainability Fest

The University of Houston community had fun and learned about the latest in sustainable practices during the sixth annual Sustainability Fest, which was held April 17 in Butler Plaza.

A number of campus and community organizations were in attendance, engaging people through interactive activities, sustainability trivia and prizes.

Among the groups that was there was Houston BCycle, a bike-share program that brought some of its bicycles for people to take a test ride. Representatives from NASA were also on hand with interactive energy monitoring stations.

Sustainability Fest, which was organized by the UH Office of Sustainability, was a zero-waste event, in which the goal was to compost, recycle or reuse all of the materials that were generated.
