Earth Day 2014!


This weekend’s Earth Day celebration and consciousness-raising event for the planet promises to be a barkin’ good time. And if you don’t believe us, just ask these three dogs and a guy who stopped by for a photo op at last year’s festival. Bike or hike on over to The Independent‘s display at Alameda Park and see what we’ve made out of recycled newspapers this year. In past efforts, clever Independent tinkers fashioned dresses, hats, bags, baskets, boxes, headbands, signs … and this year, we feature our soon-to-be-world-famous photo booth. Tag your pix #sbindy to be featured on our Instagram feed @sbindependent. And remember, recycle!
