'Sustainability Fest' planned for April 18 at UH-Manoa

HONOLULU Sustainability Fest will be held as part of the University of Hawai'i-Manoa's seventh annual Earth Day celebration on April 18.

Open to the public, the free event kicks-off at 11 a.m. with an open-air marketplace and culminates with an evening concert celebration from 5 to 11 p.m. The festivities will take place on the Hawai'i Hall Lawn on the Manoa campus.

Enjoy 12 hours of live music and performances including Makana, Millicent Cummings, Pressure Drop, Quadraphonix, and Go Jimmy Go. Browse art and plant sales, technology demos, educational booths and de-clutter at a recycling drive. UH-Manoa students can participate in a scavenger hunt to win a wooden surfboard, electric bike, solar backpack and more.

The event is sponsored by the Associated Students at the University of Hawai'i and Waste Management of Hawaii.

Sustainable Saunders, which is hosting the fest, is an initiative at UH-Manoa to evolve Saunders Hall into a model of sustainability for the campus, Hawai'i and beyond.
