Date: TBD 2022
EarthFest is a sustainable event celebrating international Earth Day. This year's 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.
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.
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.
Please contact Student Activities at 940-565-3807 at least 7 days prior to request special accommodations.

Is your student organization or department focused on sustainability and eco-friendly practices? We want to hear all about you and what you do for the Earth by sharing a video for EarthFest. This is a great opportunity to share some educational information with students so they can learn what it really means to be Mean Green.
