October is Campus Sustainability Month- an international celebration of sustainability in higher education! The goal of Campus Sustainability Month is to raise the visibility of campus sustainability and provide campus sustainability advocates with a platform to deepen campus engagement around sustainability. In that spirit, the Office of Sustainability and the Environment encourages everyone on campus to connect with sustainability on campus, and beyond. Throughout the month, campus partners and the Office of Sustainability and the Environment hosted many events including a clean-up of the Iowa River, a film screening, and panels about various topics such as plastic waste and Latinx health disparities. The final event will be on October 27th from 7-8 pm, and will be a discussion about Net Impact with Entrepreneur Garik Himebaugh. He will be talking about his journey starting his business, Eco-Stylist, and sustainability in the fashion industry.
