Community Invited to the South Sound Sustainability Expo on March 5


The community is invited to participate in the ninth annual South Sound Sustainability Expo on Saturday, March 5, from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m., at the Greater Tacoma Convention and Trade Center (1500 Broadway). This free event allows participants to discover services and products from over 90 companies and nonprofits that address sustainability needs in the community.


The event features workshops on topics such as electric vehicles, how to fix a flat bicycle tire, and the Sustainability 2.0 Challenge. Attendees of all ages can also take part in expanded kids’ activities like casting a fishing pole, nature golf, and recycled art projects. Returning again is the Book-Movie-Music Swap, where attendees are encouraged to bring unwanted media to exchange. In addition, attendees that bring a T-shirt, shopping bag or other fabric item will have the opportunity to screen print an all new octopus design as a way to commemorate the event.


The South Sound Sustainability Expo is presented by the City of Tacoma’s Office of Environmental Policy and Sustainability, with support from Tacoma Public Utilities, Pierce County, Puget Sound Cooperative Credit Union, Pierce Transit and the Port of Tacoma.
