The 11th Annual Lafayette Earth Day Festival

Posted on

Earth Day

Sunday, April 24th from 11AM– 3PM, Lafayette Library & Learning Center

Presented by Sustainable Lafayette in conjunction with the Lafayette Chamber of Commerce, the Lafayette Library & Learning Center, and the City of Lafayette.

Explore this year’s theme of Act Local. Throughout the day, we all have opportunities to make better, more environmentally-friendly decisions. Think about the products you purchase, the transportation options, the lunches we pack for kids, the snacks we carry with us to parks and sporting events. Could you take one more step and bring your reusable shopping bags, walk or ride, carpool once a week or choose fruit that comes in its own organic wrapper (oranges, apples and bananas)? Sustainable Lafayette’s mission has always been to support activities that enhance the quality of life in Lafayette. Making even small changes in your daily decisions can have a huge impact.
