St. Louis Earth Day Festival

When: Sun., April 24, 10 a.m.-6 p.m. 2016

As an earthling, it's up to you to celebrate your planet at the St. Louis Earth Day Festival. This year's celebration takes place from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. today on the Muny grounds in Forest Park (www.stlouisearthday.org), which will be accessible by foot, bicycle and biodiesel shuttle buses. Entertainment options include all-day yoga sessions, an environmental education center, a farmers market and two stages of live entertainment. Restaurants and food trucks that have been certified by the Green Dining Alliance will handle the concessions, which are served on recyclable and compostable materials to comply with the festival's zero waste initiative. You can do your part by bringing a refillable water bottle and reusable bag to cut down on waste. It's a nice planet we got here; be a shame if something bad happened to it. Admission to the St. Louis Earth Day Festival is free.
