Thanks for Making Earth Day Festival a Great Success

The Every Day Is Earth Day Festival held April 26-28 at the Kress Pavilion in Egg Harbor was a great success, attended by more than 500 people prepared to make their lives more earth friendly.

EDED was designed to educate, inspire and disseminate information about the environment, near and far. Growing concerns about air and water quality, catastrophic weather events, plastics pollution and housing shortages touch all of us. As we acknowledge this, we begin to more fully realize the importance of learning earth friendly practices we can individually and collectively adopt. Responding to these serious issues empowers us every day.

The weekend was made possible by the enthusiastic support of local businesses, individuals and organizations. A sincere “thank you” to the following for making the goal of presenting this shared learning experience a reality.
