 PUBLIC INVITED TO PROMOTE GREEN HOLIDAY AT SLIPPERY ROCK UNIVERSITY

           SLIPPERY ROCK, Pa. – Make environmentally friendly gifts for the holidays such as bird feeders, candles or wrapping paper. Pick up a booklet of helpful hints for promoting a green holiday, in and outside your house, or sample  homemade baked goods.  It’s all part of a winter Earth Day event 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. Tuesday [Dec. 3] at Slippery Rock University’s University Union. Activities are open to the public.

           Students organized “This Holiday Season… SAVE (Student Awareness for Our Valuable Earth) to promote an environmentally conscious holiday, Michele Gauger, a sustainability graduate student from New Columbia, says. They hope the holiday marketplace becomes an annual event.

            “We are promoting more joy and less stuff this holiday,” Gauger says.

           Several local vendors will sell pillows, fleece hats, gloves, knitted items, lotions and soap. Call 724-723-2273 for more information.
