Forty years after organizing one of the first Earth Day celebrations in the nation at the corner of State and Anapamu, the Community Environmental Council (CEC) is preparing to host a historic Santa Barbara Earth Day 40 festival at Alameda Park – adding features to the annual gathering and expanding it over two days: Saturday, April 17 and Sunday, April 18.
Santa Barbara Earth Day 40’s theme is “Bringing it Home,” underscoring the importance of bringing authentic sustainability into our own homes, as well as our larger home – our county, our bioregion, our state, our country, our planet. In line with the Community Environmental Council’s Fossil Free by ’33 campaign, “Bringing it Home” captures the power of daily choices and actions in making Santa Barbara one of the first fossil-free communities in the nation.
Santa Barbara Earth Day 40 will profile more than 200 exhibitors, including cutting-edge companies in emerging green business sector and an array of regional and national environmental organizations. Other features will include a Green Home Pavilion, a Green Shorts Film Festival, a Green Car Show, and other art, educational and ecological presentations. Exhibitor registration will open Monday, February 1 at www.SBEarthDay.org. Keep current by following Santa Barbara Earth Day on Facebook & Twitter.
CEC is teaming up with LoaTree (LoaTree.com), an eco-lifestyle company, and New Noise Media Group (NewNoiseSB.com), an entertainment production company, to manage large components of the marketing, entertainment, and production of the festival.
