With Earth Day right around the corner and events happening all week long, I wanted to put together a list of big events in major cities across the country. While I am strong believer in being Earth-friendly and eco-conscious every day of the year, Earth Day affords us the opportunity to have our message heard loud & clear. Kicked off by an awesome day of marching on the National Mall in Washington, DC yesterday, Earth Day 2009 is proving to be a great platform.
Here are some events in cities around the US:
New York – Check out the EarthFair happening on April 24 and 25 at Grand Central Terminal for organic foods, eco-products, yoga, kids activities and more. Visit http://www.earthdayny.org/ for more info on Earth Day events in the Big Apple.
Boston – From events at the children’s museum to a clean-up in Harvard Square, Boston has something for everyone on Earth Day – even a pouring of eco-friendly wine! Visit http://www.boston.com/lifestyle/green/earthday/ for complete info and times.
Phoenix – With a solar bake-off, alternative fuel demonstrations and an Earth Day festival, residents of the Phoenix metro area can enjoy all kinds of activities at Arizona State University’s Tempe campus. Sponsored by the Global Institute of Sustainability, the day looks to be jam-packed with sustainable celebrations. Visit http://sustainability.asu.edu/events/earth_day.php for more info!
There are dozens of smaller events in cities nationwide – for events near you, the Earth Day Network is an excellent resource – www.earthday.net .
Humankind has not woven the web of life. We are but one thread within it. Whatever we do to the web, we do to ourselves. All things are bound together. All things connect. ~Chief Seattle, 1855
