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.
