6th Annual South Sound Sustainability Expo March 2 in Tacoma

Residents and business owners looking for ways to be more sustainable are invited to attend the sixth annual South Sound Sustainability Expo next month.

The free event, which will be held on Sat., March 2 between 10 a.m. and 3 p.m. at the Greater Tacoma Convention and Trade Center in downtown Tacoma, allows participants to discover services, products, companies and agencies that address sustainability needs in the local 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 environmentally sustainable. New this year is a mini Tacoma Farmers Market, Art EnviroChallenger exhibit and an interpretive environmental dance performance by School of the Arts students. The event will also feature prize drawings and workshops on designing a sustainable landscape, solar power basics and spring gardening.

The South Sound Sustainability Expo is a partnership of the City of Tacoma, Tacoma Public Utilities, Puget Sound Energy and Pacific Lutheran University, the University of Puget Sound and the University of Washington Tacoma.
