Happy Earth Day, 2016. Earth Day was first observed 46 years ago and, today, it seems as relevant as ever. Earth Day will be celebrated tomorrow at the Piedmont Earth Day Festival at the Winston Salem Fairgrounds.* I you are interested in sustainability and watching your carbon footprint, this is the event for you. Locally, UNCG is having an event from 3-8pm (here). UNCG is one of only four universities in North Carolina achieving a gold rating from the Sustainability, Tracking, Assessment, and Rating System. Last year, UNCG increased annual student fees by $2.22 to fund projects through the Green Fund.
The above photo features bicycles at ReAligned, an antiques and repurposed-items store on East Lewis Street in downtown Greensboro. We think we'll purchase one of those repurposed bicycles and head on over to UNCG's Earth Day celebration. We'd love to learn what we can do to be as impactful as possible with respect to protecting the earth and our resources. How will you be spending Earth Day?
