Continuing U of L’s commitment to sustainability, the 14th annual sustainability fair was held in the Humanities Quad Wednesday, with a variety of local environment-focused organizations making an appearance, such as Louisville Grows, Louisville Metro Air Pollution Control, and the Jefferson County Soil and Water Conservation. Students could learn about a variety of skills and ways to be more sustainable, ranging from how to commute more sustainably, grow native plants at home, reduce air pollution, fix their own bicycles, and get involved in preserving the health of our soil and water, among other things.
