GREEN BAY, WI (WTAQ) - Northeast Wisconsin colleges are taking part in both Earth Day and Earth Week events beginning today.
At UW-Green Bay, Environmental Management and Business Institute Associate Director John Arendt says Earth Week has grown because there's a lot of ground to cover.
"Sustainability is one prong, climate change is another, looking at our food is another," Arendt says. "Everywhere you turn, there's an environmental impact."
Arendt says that's led to an increase in the number of students interested in learning about the environment and educating themselves.
Meantime at St. Norbert College in De Pere, the Environmental Club has planned one event for each day this week.
Malorie Imhoff says she's excited to get fellow students involved.
"Get people to understand the little things they do each day can make a difference," Inhoff says. "Things like recycling, planting a tree, picking up a piece of garbage on your way to class."
