Expo Celebrates Sustainability, Opportunities to Get the Whole Family Involved

This Saturday the City of Tacoma, in collaboration with Tacoma Public Utilities, Sustainable Works, University of Washington Tacoma, University of Puget Sound, and Pacific Lutheran University, will host the seventh annual South Sound Sustainability Expo.

This public event is intended to provide residents and business owners in the greater Tacoma metropolitan area a place to discover services, products, companies, and agencies in our region that address sustainability needs in our community. Expo participants will learn about a variety of local goods and services, including: transportation alternatives, green construction, energy conservation, waste minimization and recycling, alternative energy sources, global climate change initiatives, and how to be economically efficient while being sustainable. 

This year's expo will include many family-friendly activities including a kids' corner, a mini farmers' market with the chance to meet the famers, a reclaimed materials art project, re-used t-shirt screen printing, and a scavenger hunt.

Workshops at this year's expo will cover topics including backyard chicken-keeping, making solar power work for you, and a sustainable cooking demo.

The expo will also feature inspiring and thought-provoking short films on sustainability efforts locally and elsewhere, for both kids and adults, including Tacoma's Biggest Carbon Loser.

The event is family-friendly, and free to the public. Check it out this Saturday, March 1 from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Read more and view the full schedule here.
