EarthFest is a sustainable event celebrating international Earth Day. This yea'rs event will have live entertainment, local vendors and student organizations, food, and educational activities. EarthFest aims to be a low-waste event featuring recycling and composting.
UNT has supported environmental research and teaching since 1934. EarthFest is only one of the ways UNT helps to educate and spread environmental responsibility, but it's probably the most fun! It is collaboratively hosted by Student Activities, UPC, and the We Mean Green Fund, and is free with current UNT ID.
As in previous years, UNT Dining Services has dedicated their time to securing a sustainable, vegan menu. There will be plenty of food for all to enjoy, along with a glimpse of how Dining secures the vegetables it uses.
Please contact Student Activities at 940-565-3807 at least 7 days prior to request special accommodations.
