Celebrate Ypsilanti Earth Day
Earth Day Ypsilanti 4 will take place from noon to 5 p.m., April 16, at the Ypsilanti Freight House, with the theme of Building A Sustainable Community. Julia Bayha, commissioner of the Ypsilanti Sustainability Commission, says, “We’re working hard to make this a true community event, to make it both educational and fun, to create a safe space for all to meet and greet, to nurture community-wide networking towards sustainability and a memorable afternoon! Please invite your friends and family, co-workers and associates to this event.”
Participants can talk with the presenters, elected officials and others that will be adding their knowledge, practices and passion to the mission of the day and of our lives.
The Sustainability Commission seeks to create a model of sustainability through efforts to advocate, educate and promote the social, economic and environmental health of the community now and into the future. Bayha notes, “Decades ago, green activists locally, nationally and all around the world coined the phrase: “Earth Day is every day.” Another term created years ago, was “Think Global, Act Local” and it has never been more important that we live in the truth of those two adages now.”
