Earth Day Hot List

April 22, 2011

For most of us, we try to make everyday a day that we respect the Earth. But the nice thing about the Earth Day holiday is there is so much to do today, tomorrow, and for the next month.

On GoGreen’s event page you can find a full listing of events, and submit your event.

Starting off my Earth Day Hot List is solar-powered 92.5’s River Rave Earth Day concert happening today at Rose Kennedy Greenway, Boston’s ribbon of contemporary parks that’s been recently completed. Listen to Entrain and the Bodeans and take a whirl on the new Greenway Carousel for $3. Don’t forget to bring your reusable water bottle!

Get down to business tomorrow with a clean-up in Rochester, Haz Waste Day in Salem/Beverly, or bring your child to Green School Earth Day/Arbor Day celebration at Stony Brook Wildlife Sanctuary in Norfolk. Enjoy the renovated boardwalk and learn nature games. More from Green Schools happens at its Summit on April 29th from 10 a.m. – 3 p.m. at Mansfield High School. Teachers, environmentalists, and program coordinators get together for workshops and information on greening our schools.

Next week the action heats up with green business networking and sustainability at events throughout Massachusetts. From Peabody, Hopkinton, and Maynard the focus is on green fests, fairs, and expos. At MaynardCAN, April 30th at the Fowler School from 12-4 p.m., discover simple ways to change daily habits that make an impact on climate change and the wallet and hear State Senator Jamie Eldridge talk about energy issues and steps the Massachusetts Legislature is taking to address them.

Early May features the Massachusetts Sustainable Economy Conference at the Federal Reserve Bank of Boston, the “Mighty Wave” public art and education project, the Hilltown Spring Festival, and an Elegantly Green Wedding Showcase. Eco-approved wedding vendors gather at the Renaissance Waterfront Hotel on May 15 from 1-5 p.m. to help “Reduce, Reuse, Recycle! Elegantly of course.” Swag bags for the first 50 attendees! Take the rail, train, or bus and lower your carbon footprint.

Not to be undone, May 21st features the Salem Living Green & Renewable Energy Fair in Old Town Hall and the free EarthFest: Boston concert at the Hatch Shell by 92.9 FM.  The station announces the line-up today, of course.

For all of these and other events, bookmark the Events page. Or, submit your event and show up in the next GoGreen blog hot list.

Happy Earth–month!
