Office Supplies, Clothing Donations Being Accepted for Earth Day Festival

Each year, thousands enjoy Georgia Tech’s Earth Day Festival, one of the largest celebrations in the Southeast. But you can start preparing now for two of the festival’s events: the clothing swap and office supply exchange.

Gently used clothing is being accepted until Monday, April 2. The Earth Day Festival, which will take place Friday, April 20, will feature a clothing swap where attendees can shop at a free bazaar of donated apparel. Donation bins are located around campus. More information is available at the Earth Day site.

The free office supply exchange provides a way for campus departments to donate their unused supplies and pick up things they may need. Departments can schedule a pickup at their campus building prior to the festival or arrange a time to bring donations to Earth Day organizers. More information is available at the Earth Day site.

Both events at the festival are open to anyone with a valid BuzzCard.

Mark your calendar for the festival on Friday, April 20, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at Tech Green and Tech Walk. Learn more at
