ST. LOUIS (KTRS) Rain or shine, this weekend the second largest Earth Day celebration in the country is being held in Forest Park. Earth Day runs Saturday and Sunday, April 22 and 23, from 11 a.m. until 5 p.m. and features educational exhibits and local nonprofits that offer information on everything green – from recycling to local food.
Festival-goers can take the “Earth Day Challenge” by bringing a reusable bag, refillable water
bottle and using low-impact transportation, such as Metro Transit, to get to Forest Park. Visitors
who accomplish two of the three challenges receive an eco-friendly prize. All Festival food/non-food vendors are required to participate in the event’s Zero Waste initiative, serving on only recyclable and compostable serviceware. All event waste will be collected and sorted for recycling and composting.
