Earth day promotes sustainability

UM Flint hosted an early Earth Day celebration.

This is the fourth year of the multi-campus event celebrating Earth Day.

There were live animal displays and information stations.

The information stations covered topics ranging from teaching youth about recycling to how ordinary plastics can be used for art.

Organizers say it's all about living sustainable lives.

"We have to make it fun because Earth Day is all about celebrating the Earth and having fun getting outdoors, although the weather isn't quite cooperating today," says organizer Nadine Thor.

Earth day is April 22.
