Earth Day celebrations continued Sunday at Roanoke College.
The Artichoke Dance company traveled from New York to take part in Sunday's events.
They used dance, satire, and dialogue to make an impact with their "Plastic People of the Universe" performance.
It focused on how the growing use of plastics in our everyday lives affects the environment.
It's a message that organizers hope strikes a chord with people.
"Plastic is not good for the environment. It gets in our waterways" event organizer Matthew Brown said. "It doesn't degrade like paper does. For Earth Day we promote how we can live better and preserve the environment for the future."
Local environmental organizations and vendors were on hand with demonstrations on their environmentally-friendly products.
