Event description

Description

What are we doing:

Organizing an event called "awareness day". It will be an event open to any members of the community to help raise awareness and move beyond talking about pollution to how we can all make actionable changes in our personal lives.

For the past 4 months, Dillon and I have been keeping all the recycling in our backyards. We will be stationing over 100 bags of recycling as a visual presentation to showcase the effects of single-use plastics and our consumer habits. Alongside the garbage tower, there will be many environmental companies setting up booths at the event that you will have the chance to engage with!

At the event we will have:

- Food for sale

- Water (sponsored by spring box water): bring your own reusable water bottle

- Gloves and bags for a cleanup

- Awards for some of our volunteers

- Zero waste gift baskets for a raffle


Purpose of the event:

To change peoples thoughts and ideas when it comes to sustainability and the effects of our everyday purchases. Picking up trash is not the solution, the solution is a reduction in our production and consumption and this is the message we want people to take away after leaving the event.

To "wow" people by how much garbage we found in a very clean city - get people to empathize with the thought of this issue in a third world country.


FAQs

Are there ID or minimum age requirements to enter the event?

No. This event is open to all ages! Bring out all your family and friends. It will be a very inspiring, informing event, open to all ages.


What are my transportation/parking options for getting to and from the event?

We are not providing transportation to and from the event, but bus 900 brings you very close to the school. There will be parking available (free of charge) for anyone that will be driving.
