Albuquerque to host first statewide Earth Day Festival


The city of Albuquerque and other environmentally friendly groups will be organizing the state’s first Earth Day Festival on April 21.

“Our world needs change. That’s where you come in as an individual. You yield real power and influence as a consumer, a voter and a member of a community that can unite for change,” said Art Gardenswartz, the Earth Day Festival NM founder. “Don’t underestimate your power. With others around the world, we can create a movement that is inclusive and impactful.”

This local event has a theme of “Cut Costs and Carbon with Electrification,” which will promote ways New Mexicans can make a difference in reducing their negative impact on the planet. Attendees will also learn how to access $500 to $20,000 in tax rebates and savings on utility bills.

The event will feature a variety of informational booths, a series of presentations, a children’s activity center and a poetry and art contest with cash prizes.

“We are actively working to make Albuquerque a resilient, welcoming place for families for many generations to come,” said Mayor Tim Keller. “We’ve made big strides in sustainability, renewable energy and equity, and we look forward to hosting this event to help even more folks get educated about how they can make a difference.”...more

We know that Albuquerque certainly pollutes the political environment and I'm sure they are a major contributor of bad stuff to our natural enviroment.
