UA Little Rock to Celebrate Earth Day April 20

The University of Arkansas at Little Rock is celebrating Earth Day with Teslas, a campus cleanup, energy-efficient giveaways, and an electronic recycling drive.

The Earth Day celebration will take place from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Wednesday, April 20, in the Chi Omega Courtyard outside Ottenheimer Library.

The Tesla Owners Club of Arkansas will be a new addition to the Earth Day festivities. The club will bring Tesla’s Model Y and Model S vehicles to campus for viewing.

Keep Little Rock Beautiful is looking for volunteers to participate in a campuswide cleanup event. Participants should visit the Keep Little Rock Beautiful tent for trash grabbers and trash bags to collect litter on campus. Those who bring back their bags will receive a free t-shirt.

Back by popular demand, the Sustainability Committee and Entergy are giving away free desk lamps with USB ports and smart power strips. Meanwhile, participants may drop off their electronics for a recycling drive in Lot 15.

Additional vendors include Purely Essential 4 Life, Sacred Earth Gifts, UA Little Rock Campus Garden, UA Little Rock Wellness, Friends of Fourche Creek, Keep Little Rock Beautiful, Little Rock Wastewater Authority, Audubon Society, Arkansas Geological Survey, Calm +Confidence, and Houseplant Collection.
