EARTH DAY IS TODAY

“Eco enthusiasts are encouraged to participate in “Green Scene 2008,” today, from 3 p.m. to 7 p.m. at 21 Commerce, located at 2106 Pacific Ave., Tacoma. Green Scene will highlight local merchants and businesses focused on sustainability as a business practice. The event is free and open to the public.

Participants in today’s event include organic food growers and distributors, sustainable textiles merchants, local nature photographers and publications. Goods will be available for sampling and purchase. The goal, said organizers at BCRA, is to celebrate Earth Day and raise awareness of locally produced goods and services.

Today’s event is part of a larger effort by BCRA titled Green Spring, which will dedicate the month of April to renewing eco-friendly habits sustainability education, and environmentally conscientious living. For more information, visit www.greenscenetacoma.com.

While today is technically Earth Day, environmental projects are happening through the week. Washington Department of Ecology has created an Earth Day 2008 Web site as an easy point of access to Earth Week events statewide.

For other information about “living green” in Washington, see ecology’s homepage,” quoting the Pierce County Business Examiner.

More can be found on the Earth Day Network website and on Wikipedia.
