UBS Participates in Lehigh’s 2012 Earth Day Celebration

Lehigh University celebrated the 42nd anniversary of Earth Day with an Earth Day Fair on the UC front lawn on 4/20/2012. University Business Services participated by hosting a table showcasing the environmentally friendly steps we are taking to support the University’s sustainability plan and master plan. The UBS table also featured information on the Bethlehem Farmers’ Market, which is run by UBS and held in Campus Square each year from May to October.

The Earth Day Fair was well attended by Lehigh students, faculty and staff. The speakers included Delicia Nahman (Sustainability Coordinator), Peggy Plympton (Vice President of Finance and Administration) and University President Alice P. Gast, who gave a speech on the upcoming sustainability plan for campus.

Organizations participating in the Earth Day Fair included Brickman, LEAG, Eco-Reps, LTS, WeCar, Broughal Middle School, Theta Xi and Green Action, among others. Activities ranged from an unplugged concert by Lehigh students and a photo contest to a live waste audit and an eco- footprint calculator, to name a few.

The weather was beautiful and the day was a great showing of the support that Lehigh students, faculty and staff have for sustainability on the Lehigh campus.
