They promote awareness of environmental issues and educate the college community.

The Environmental Action Group at West Virginia University at Parkersburg thought organizing an Earth Day Expo would be the perfect opportunity.

Advisor Dr. Rebecca Phillips, says we live in a beautiful part of the world and she would love to leave it for our grandchildren at least as good as we have it, but ideally even better.

She says people don't know the impact of our individual actions. Each of us can do a lot of harm and also do a lot of good.

“Eliminate or reduce your use of plastic, take cloth bags to the grocery store, carry a reusable water bottle with you,” she says. “We don't need 5,000 plastic bottles going into our trash every week. The other thing is to minimize how much you drive.”

According to Phillips, everyday should be Earth Day and all of us have our part.

It's your choice what you do, but remember it affects our planet and future generations.
