We wrote in a recent post about Earth Day celebrations happening around the United States. Cities across the country are holding events for citizens who want to reiterate their commitment to living green, sustainable lives and taking responsibility for the health of the planet. That post contained a short list of events in Massachusetts, Texas and California, and we wanted to share information about other events that took place over the weekend or are happening today.

  • Earth Day San Francisco was held at the Civic Center Plaza on Saturday April 20 and featured a host of exhibits, vendors and speakers who shared information and held discussions about all sorts of topics relating to sustainability and environmentally conscious lifestyles. Among those exhibits was the Permaculture and Clean Energy Zone, which offered details about how to develop agriculture systems that mimic natural ecosystems.
  • Earth Day Denver 2013 took place on Monday April 22 at the Wellington Webb Municipal Building Atrium, 201 W. Colfax Ave. The fair featured booths from local businesses and organizations that produce environmentally friendly products and engage in sustainable practices. Additionally, the event was powered by renewable energy from the National Renewable Energy Laboratory located in Golden, Co.

There are still a handful of events that will occur over the next few days, all of which are free to attend:

  • Washington, D.C. celebrates Earth Month, with events held at Union Station and on the National Mall throughout April. Citizens can attend a variety of exhibitions, including the Verizon Wireless Earth Fair, which takes place until April 23 in the East Hall of Union Station.
  • Phoenix College in Phoenix, Arizona, will be hosting Earth Day celebrations on Wednesday April 24 at the Bullpitt Auditorium, Sophomore Square and Pastor Plaza. The event will include presentations by student groups and vendors promoting green living tips and lifestyles.
