North Carolina Planet Earth Celebration

April 16th, 2011 

Raleigh, North Carolina 

It's FREE; Rain or Shine 

Join us for the 4th Annual Planet Earth Celebration, 
downtown Raleigh’s premier sustainability festival
 showcasing all the ways to love the Earth! 

It is time to honor Earth Day, celebrate sustainability, and meet the many good people, businesses and organizations in our community who are really making it happen.
Sponsored by the Museum of Natural Sciences, Burt’s Bees - one of our favorite local brands!  What Mama doesn't love Burt's Bees earth friendly natural personal care products for the Greater Good! 

In 2008, the Museum and Burt's Bees, the City of Raleigh and a sustainable world of dedicated champions worked together for the first time to present an event in celebration of the meaningful efforts and many resources for sustainable living available to all of us right here in the Triangle community. We found wonderful partners offering goods and services, education and motivation, as well as some 15,000 festival-goers who came together to help make for a fun-filled festival that respects, educates and entertains.
We hope you’ll join us this year, 2011, as we present the fourth Planet Earth Celebration.
It’s a green festival. In 2010, the festival diverted 87% of our waste from the landfill through recycling and composting and the collaborative goodwill and caring spirit of our exhibitors, volunteers and visitors. This year, we’re aiming to make it a zero-waste-to-landfill event.
The exhibitors you’ll visit have signed a ‘green pledge’, a commitment to do all they can to minimize their impact on the environment, from offsetting energy use to minimizing waste.
It’s often said that it takes a village to raise a child – for us, that child is our Environment. Individually, we’re working to do our part; as a community team, we can grow our efforts... and our successes... by leaps and bounds. Join us!

Warmly,  Carolina Mama
