Ride it, Repair it, Sustain it, Share it

The Sustainability Office will celebrate Sustainability Day Thursday, Oct. 22, with three activities on campus.

From 1 to 4 p.m. in Huff’s Lounge, lower level of Memorial Student Center, Sustainapalooza will offer information on ways to become involved in sustainable programs at UW-Stout, such as the improved Rideshare program, Bike Share bike rental and recycling efforts. Also, free, healthy snacks will be available from the UW-Sprout Campus Garden.

Did you know we have a garden?

From 1 to 2 p.m., at the west entrance to the student center, the UW-Stout Cycling Club will show students and staff how to use the two new Bike Fixtation repair stations. The other station is outside Merle M. Price Commons, and a third one is planned for north campus. The stations are equipped with various bike tools to help bikers perform routine repairs, as well as an air pump.

Pump it, wrench it, ride it.

At 7 p.m. in room 321 of the Applied Arts Building, there will be a free showing of the documentary “True Cost.” It examines the impact that the fashion industry has on workers and the world.
