The Earth Day Challenge is a great way for you to participate in sustainability on April 22nd and 23rd. Complete two of the following three tasks, and you have met the Earth Day Challenge:
- Bring a bottle to re-fill with water at the Festival. There will be water stations throughout the event grounds, which are also marked on our map.
- Bring a bag that will be used to carry any purchases or give-a-ways that you acquire at the Festival. Plastic bags are so passe, so help us grow the re-usable bag trend.
- Use low impact transport to the Festival: ride the Metro (bus and/or train), ride your bike, or walk. You can find out more details about getting to the Festival on our Planning Your Visit webpage.
Visitors who accomplish two of the three challenges will receive an eco-friendly prize at the Information Booth. Prizes are first come-first serve, as supplies lasts. One prize per person.
Remember – you can take the ultimate Earth Day Challenge by making every day Earth Day. Reusing bags, saying NO to bottled water, and using sustainable transportation options are simple and impactful things that individuals can do to make a world of difference!
