The Academy for Environmental Science (AES) will be hosting “Eco-Fest 2018 – Beyond the Bag” at the Jefferson Township High School senior cafeteria, 1010 Weldon Road in Oak Ridge on Thursday, March 1 from 7 to 9 p.m.

AES says that “most of know the importance of using reusable shopping bags but with a little bit of effort our environment can benefit a great deal.” All are invited to come find out what else they can do to make a difference for the environment.

Attendees of this event will find information booths, vendors of eco-friendly products, make and take areas and free samples.

Anyone with questions can contact Dr. FitzGerald by emailing

“Eco-Fest 2018 – Beyond the Bag” is made possible by a PRIDE in Public Education grant from the Jefferson Township Education Association.
