Unless you’ve really been living off the grid, you know that next Wednesday April 22 is Earth Day. And there is no better place to be than DC.
Kick off the week-long celebration with the Earth Day Network’s event on the National Mall, Sunday April 19. Don’t miss the Eco-Roadshow with exhibits from green companies, non-profits, and embassies as well as music performances by the Flaming Lips, DJ Spooky, and Los Lobos.
The event is also the official launch of The Green Generation, a two-year initiative that focuses on ordinary people who are doing their part to help find solutions to urgent national and global issues, such as climate change or the world’s water crises.
Want to get involved? Check out the Green Apple Festival, where you can volunteer to clean up parks, build green homes, plant trees and more.
