Earth Day is always an appreciable way to remember just how small we are and how dependent we are on the Earth. We all live here and we are beating the hell outta this place. This is a day to reflect on what you’ve been doing and what you can do in the future to have a smaller impact. We’ve only got one Earth humans and she ain’t gonna last long at this rate.
One of the coolest thing about this festival is that the band Vinyl will be here. I love watching this band live. If nothing else, you should come out and chill out to Latin Fuck from the Bay.
There will be an E-Waste Collection site at the event where they will be accepting and recycling your e-waste. Please look to the bottom of this post for a list of what will be accepted.

A variety of booths educating you on things we can all do to help out will be on display throughout the event. A fashion show with clothing made of trash should be interesting. Fun bands will be rockin’ all day.
