Earth Day is just around the corner, April 22nd, and hopefully everyone is going to do something to celebrate this day. Everyday should be Earth Day but just like everyday should be love thy neighbor day (not sure if that is a real day), sometimes we just need a day to bring attention to issues and do some thinking. What I love most about this day is the education part. It’s a great opportunity to learn something new about the environment, what is happening for new inventions, technology, food, companies, community events, ways to participate through the year, etc. I have lots more to say about Earth Day, which to be exact is 36 days away, but until then you might consider circling this nifty event in your calendar, if you’re from the Chicago area.

It’s called, Green Scene on Northside’s grounds along the Chicago River. The indoor/outdoor festival is dedicated to raising community awareness about available eco-friendly practices. It’s the second annual event being held by, CASE. They’re a student led group and they started in 2004. It’s a very impressive group of students that actually care. If you’re near this event I’d consider checking it out, supporting the group of high school students and educating yourself on some really cool environmental topics from green dog poop bags, car sharing, vegan ice cream, organic lawn care or natural bedding. I won’t be making the long drive but I hope to attend something locally. More to come on Earth Day but let he planning begin!
