Living Green is Second Nature

Each year, the Environmental Council of Sacramento (ECOS) coordinates Sacramento Earth Day. Over 150 organizations and businesses exhibit a vast array of practical information, goods and services that cultivate a healthier and more sustainable way of living. We also host a variety of live music, entertainers, healthy cuisine and fun activities for all, including a children’s area. Admission is free and we anticipate more than 5,000 attendees. One of our primary goals is to educate community members on the need to reduce the footprint of our daily lives and preserve the planet for future generations. Sacramento Earth Day is an important tool for working toward this goal. The theme this year is “Living Green is Second Nature”!

Event-wide Sustainable Waste Diversion System

Compliments of Urban Sustainable Solutions, we have a system in place to get as close to zero waste as possible within the constraints of our city’s systems. This includes the option to compost and recycle at each station for waste disposal, and a volunteer at each station to help everyone learn more about reducing the amount of waste that we all send to the landfill.

Join the Team! Volunteer

We need lots of volunteers to make Sacramento Earth Day happen each year. Please click here visit our Earth Day Volunteer page to read more information about it and to let us know if you or your group interested.

The tasks with which we need assistance are:

– Breakdown/Clean-up (4pm – 6pm); and
– Waste Diversion Education (2-hour shifts between 11am – 4pm).
