Chula Vista Presents South Bay Earth Day

Everyone is invited to attend the South County’s largest Earth Day celebration at the free, family friendly South Bay Earth Day event taking place Saturday, April 9, from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. Held at Memorial Park, 373 Park Way, the event will help build awareness about how to practice healthy habits of sustainability and your impact on the planet, with fun interactive hands-on activities. Help create a greener and cleaner community and start to show your appreciation for the Earth during this event.

South Bay Earth Day is an inclusive event that provides a fun space for all to learn how to live an environmentally-friendly lifestyle that is mutually beneficial for you and Mother Earth. This zero-waste event is packed with over 40 green vendors, a showcase of eco-conscious products, programs, and hands-on green activities geared toward education, conservation, recycling, and sustainability. Geared to both those already living and breathing an eco-friendly lifestyle, and for newcomers looking for a starting point to go green, the event includes “Learn To” workshops such as: Zero-Waste Living,
Food Waste Tips and Tricks, Ask the Recycler, and Electrifying Your Home.
