Allegheny’s first Sustainability Fair started Monday and is planned through Feb. 16, when environmentalist Bill McKibben visits campus. Various student groups and college departments are displaying their efforts toward making Allegheny a sustainable campus.

“A small group of students and faculty work really hard toward different goals like becoming carbon neutral by 2020 and a Fair Trade University, among other things,” said EcoRep Sara Schombert, ’13. “The Sustainability Fair is to make sure students are familiar with Allegheny’s sustainable initiatives.”
