Consumption. We all need to consume, but how much and how can we do it so there's less of an impact on the land and the future?

This is the theme of this year's fourth annual Live Green Expo, on Wednesday, Feb. 9.

From 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. in the College Union Ballroom and lobby there are displays, demonstrations and presentations environmental issues, recycling and ways to live green.

There are also two special film screenings, including "Addicted to Plastic" at 4:30 p.m. in the ballroom. Director Ian Connacher will host a Q&A after the film.
At 9 p.m. in the ballroom, a film about the corruption of the Los Angeles water supply, "Chinatown," will be shown.

This year's event also includes an opportunity to clean house — and get some great finds. The entire college community is invited to leave and take an item from the Swap, Drop, Shop area in the College Union lobby Feb. 4 through Feb. 10. Items leftover from the household trade are donated to ABVI Goodwill, says Garry Morgan, area coordinator and Live Green Day Committee chairperson.
