We hope you’re fired up. We sure are. Earth Day 2014 will be a minimum-waste event. This means we have a goal of limiting materials and recycling as much of the waste as possible at Union Plaza. As an attendee, please be mindful and use the recycling bins. Vendors, booths and activities are asked to consider the waste they will produce and plan to be as environmentally friendly as possible. Lincoln Earth Day 2014 will strive to reach the entire community about the importance of a sustainable urban environment.
