Food, fun and eco-friendly products are on tap for the City of Manhattan Beach's 23rd Annual Earth Day Celebration and Concert this Saturday, April 25, 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. at Polliwog Park. The free public event will include music, games, and information on the city's efforts to make Manhattan Beach "a greater and greener place to live, play and work."
In conjunction with the event, free e-waste recycling and document shredding will be offered nearby at Manhattan Beach Middle School from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. In addition, attendees can bring gently used, clean, professional and casual clothes and used prescription glasses to the V.O.I.C.E. booth at the event. The city's Going Green booth will offer battery and printer toner cartridge recycling.
The city staged its first Earth Day celebration in 1992 at Polliwog Park. The first "official" Earth Day was held on April 22, 1970 when people across the U.S. got involved in efforts to help protect the environment. Earth Day is now celebrated around the world.
This year's Manhattan Beach event is staged by the city's Parks and Recreation Department, in conjunction with V.O.I.C.E (Volunteers and Organizations Improving the Community’s Environment).
