BROWNSVILLE, TEXAS (KVEO NEWSCENTER 23) — Monday April 22nd is Earth Day and several organizations in Brownsville educated the public about the importance of the environment. The Glady's Porter Zoo and students from the University of Texas at Brownsville Environmental Science Department were just some the people talking with students on campus about recycling and keeping our environment clean. “Earth day means being outside and trying to give back to the earth planting something or recycling I think it’s important we are not just sending everything to the landfill and everyone should focus on the reducing the waste they produce.” said UTB student Eva Garcia.
