Earth Day is on the horizon! While we think every day should be a day to celebrate the Earth, we definitely won’t pass up an excuse to appreciate the Earth even more. This year, we will be hosting an event at Kingsbury Street Cafe, here in Lincoln Park, Chicago. All of the employees will be wearing their greenteen shirts, and we will have placards up at every table. You will have the opportunity to donate to help our startup stay up and running, (or buy t-shirts!), and you will get to enjoy some seriously delicious food.
We encourage you to gather up your friends and family and organize your own Earth Day event- be it a beach clean up, a spring planting session, or a zero waste party (use durables! compost the leftovers!). And if none of these things seem realistic, don’t give up yet. Commit to reducing your waste not just for one day, but as a lifestyle. Build a zero waste kit to store in your car, or by your front door, full of produce bags, re-useable bags, steel straws, re-useable water bottles, thermoses, and the like. This way, you won’t ever be stuck without any low-waste options.
Anyway, if you’re in the Chicagoland area, bring your family and come spend some time with us this weekend at Kingsbury Street Cafe, either on April 21st, or April 22nd. And don’t leave without trying the muffins! They are delish.
