Georgia Southern University's 4th annual Greenfest taught groups on sustainability

Hundreds of people attended Georgia Southern University's 4th annual Greenfest Saturday to learn how to be more environmentally friendly.

STATESBORO, GA (WTOC) - The event brought together a host of groups to teach them new ways to improve sustainability.

From recycling to water usage, organizers said small steps by many can make more progress than severe changes by a few.

"Radical change is not required here," Dr. Lissa Leege, GSU Sustainability. "Today, we're showing simple solutions and simple changes to your lifestyle."

Participants also had some creative fun at the event, with things like a palette reuse contest.
