Easy Green Weekend Project #3 – Earth Day Weekend!

April 18th, 2008

With Earth Day coming up on Tuesday the 22nd, there are Earth Day festivities going on all weekend long. What a perfect, easy green weekend project!

Here’s a look at fun Earth Day weekend events across the US, around the world, and in your own backyard:

The Green Apple Festival will be held in eight U.S. cities – D.C., N.Y.C., Miami, Chicago, Denver, Dallas, L.A., and San Francisco. Check out the details here at screamtobegreen.

For a look at other activities, check out this searchable list at the Earth Day Network. You can search for worldwide activities – it’s a great tool.

The Sierra Club has tons going on, as you would expect. They’ve got a terrific searchable tool, too. See it here.

And check this out: Google has a fun interactive map that allows you to put in a note about what you will be doing on Earth Day.

In your own neighborhood? How about something as simple as cleaning up a trail? Or picking litter up off a city sidewalk?

And if you’re in my neighborhood – Bethesda – check out this fun and educational event planned at Wiggle Room – all about Practical, Eco-Friendly, Non-Toxic Choices for Baby. (But you need to RSVP!)

What are you doing this weekend? Leave a comment and share!

    I’ll be speaking at the N.O.W. state conference on Saturday on Purses, Peers, Posts and the Power to Move Green Markets, then pulling weeds at the shelter on Sunday. Getting dirty makes me happy. The melons, beans, tomatoes, peppers, onions and avocados are all up. The downside of Socal is that you never stop gardening.

    Great list, there’s no excuse not to something!

    Hey Lynn! It’s Clara, from la marguerite blog. Here’s my email. Starting on earth day, my school is selling reusable cloth ecobags to raise money for CBF (Chesapeake Bay Foundation). I am also hoping to participate in some local cleanups. We’ll see. Hopefully I won’t have too much homework!

    Hi Clara, what a great school fundraiser! I wish more schools had fundraisers like this instead of selling overpriced gift wrap, hydrogenated corn syrup sweets, and non-free trade chocolates. I would love to profile what you are doing. I’ll be in touch!
