Lack of sustainability is an ongoing issue in not only the Arcadia community but the entire world. Small changes in one’s everyday life can reduce their carbon footprint and make a difference. Myself along with a fellow peer and friend, Julia Neff, will be planning a “green festival.” In order to take steps in making an impact on the environment, we will be doing environmental friendly activities with the community and on our own that will lead up to our event. At this event we plan on doing a clothing exchange, tie dying with natural materials, having a farmer’s market, serving no waste food, having a local band perform and more. Through this event, we wish to raise awareness and encourage the Arcadia community to practice sustainability in their everyday lives.
