With Earth Day a few weeks away, Humber is doing everything they can to prepare for the occasion starting with a campus clean up.

Humber News was there to cover it.

Created in 1970, Earth Day is celebrated by 192 countries each year on April 22. The events on this day support environmental protection.

For those wanting to get more involved in Humber’s Earth Week, the college is also hosting events each day this week at the North Campus. Students can also drop off their electronic waste near registration for the remainder of the week.

Here’s full list of Earth week events at both North and Lakeshore Campuses.
