Celebrate ‘Earth Day’ This Wednesday With The Eco Action Club

There’s nothing quite like a week when you can celebrate Penn State’s greenery on both Monday and Wednesday. The warm spring weather is finally here and you can celebrate Earth Day with Penn State’s oldest and largest grassroots environmental organization, Eco Action. Since its foundation in 1972, the students in Eco Action have helped give life to the environmentalist movement on campus.

Eco Action is screening the film “Plastic Paradise” in the HUB Auditorium on Wednesday. This film emphasizes the dangers of littering and the urgent need for us to become more earth-friendly. The screening starts 7 p.m., followed by a discussion.

The club’s primary goal is to transform Penn State into a sustainable university. Each semester, the group decides on two to three environmental campaigns to focus its efforts towards, according to the club’s website. Eco Action works to inform students about sustainability-related issues happening on campus, as well as around the world.

If you can’t make the film and are interested in getting involved the group, the club meets every Tuesday at 6 p.m. in 323 Boucke.
