Earth Fest 2009

From Ecologic
Jump to: navigation, search

Earth Fest is the main event that Ecologic puts on every year. In years past, we have served veggie burgers and solar smoothies, made and gave out recycled paper notebooks, ran paint-a-pot pot-a-plant (which is exactly what it sounds like), knitted plastic-bag clothing, hosted live bands, and displayed the culmination of Face the Waste. It's always a fantastic time!

Earth Fest is the time when we'll do a bunch of awesome miscellaneous-type fun awesome projects that are awesome. And fun. Some of these include paint-a-pot pot-a-plant, and tie-dying t-shirts! and other things that probably should not be tie-dyed!!
