Boston College’s sustainability practices and activities will be in the spotlight during the latter part of April, with a trio of Sustainability Fairs on campus today, April 18 and 29.

Today’s event will take place from 11:30 a.m.-1:30 p.m. on Lower Campus in Corcoran Commons Plaza (inside on the second floor of Corcoran Commons if raining). The April 18 fair will be held in the Stuart Hall Lounge on Newton Campus from 11:30 a.m.-1:30 p.m., while the April 29 fair — which is co-sponsored with the BC Outdoor Club — is on Stokes Hall Lawn from 11 a.m.-3 p.m.

Organizers say the Sustainability Fairs will highlight the work of the University’s Office of Sustainability and other similarly focused groups that are contributing to the events, including the Office of Parking and Transportation, Information Technology Services, Procurement Services, Facilities Services, BC Grounds, Athletics, Waste Management, BClean, Dining Services, Office of Residential Life, the Environmental Studies Program, and various BC student eco-groups.

In addition to exhibits and displays about campus sustainability, Facilities Services and the Office of Engineering and Energy Management will give away free refillable water bottles and LED light bulbs. Healthy and sustainable snack options will also be available.
