UWM celebrates Earth Week 2017

Kicking off with a talk by “No Impact Man” Colin Beavan, Earth Week at UWM highlighted ways that the community can enjoy, protect and preserve the environment.

Students and faculty were also encouraged to participate in the No Impact Challenge, a weeklong carbon cleanse to discover how living more sustainably can benefit everyone. Daily challenges pushed people to produce no trash, use no energy, buy nothing new and eat locally sourced food.

The challenge concludes April 23 with an “eco-sabbath,” where people are encouraged to unplug and spend the day without using social media or television.
