Sustainability Month

COVID-19 Update: Due to the recent outbreak of COVID-19, Sustaining Pacific has canceled or postponed in-person Sustainability Month events. Many will be rescheduled once the situation has improved. See below for more information and follow our Instagram (@SustainingPacific16) for the latest updates.

The University of the Pacific has set aside the month of April each year as Sustainability Month. During the month we celebrate and highlight sustainable and green activities on all three campuses. Some activities have included: a bike repair station, Green Fashion Show, celebrity guest speakers such as Annie Leonard and Eric Schlosser, the Beehive Collective and more. Each campus hosts a variety of activities based on the demands and desires of their students, faculty and staff.

Green Fashion & Art Show 2020

The 10th Annual Green Fashion & Art Show has been postponed and is planned to be rescheduled to Fall 2020.

This year the theme is "Decades," so pull out the scrunchies, take a stroll through your local vintage shops and embrace those old tie-dye tees.

Fashion Show prizes will be awarded to the following categories:
1) Best in Show
2) Top Thrifted Piece (anything bought or acquired secondhand)
3) Top Upcycled Piece (anything made from reused materials, garbage or recyclables)

Art Show prizes will be awarded to:
1) People's Choice
2) Top 2D
3) Top 3D
