Indy reflects on Earth Day


Emma Russell– Reduce, Reuse, and Recycle this upcoming Earth Day in downtown Indianapolis. On Sat. April 25, White River State Park will be hosting a free Earth Day Festival from 11 am to 4 pm. There will be musical performances all day provided by 92.3 WTTS on the Karma Records Music Stage. There will also be over 100 eco-friendly organizations and businesses present at this years event, such as “Animalia”,”Act of Love”, and “Backyard Blessings.”

“Earth Day is probably the most unappreciated holiday because it is celebrating what makes life possible. It’s really good that we [the community] are doing something to give it the attention it deserves,” freshman Lia Benvenutti said.

There will also be various activities that attendees can expect to participate in upon entry. At 11:00 am chef Trisha LeBlanc will be running a booth making smoothies, and at 12:00 pm “Bee Public” will be running a workshop on bee keeping and Bee-friendly plants. Later at 1 pm members of Wolf-Beach Sustainable food production will be hosting a workshop on Organic gardening,  and Abby Dyke will be teaching attendees how to make their own Natural Deodorant.
