Join ILACSD at South County’s largest Earth Day celebration on Saturday, April 7, 2018, from 11:00 AM – 4:00 PM at the Chula Vista Marina at Bayside Park located at 999 Bayside Parkway, Chula Vista, CA 91910. Enjoy fun activities and a showcase of products and services to help you reduce your impact on the environment, save money and live greener and healthier. Celebrate your love for the planet and be inspired and empowered to help its natural resources. Attendees are encouraged to ride your human-powered vehicle (your bike!) to lessen your carbon footprint – we’ll even provide a monitored bike parking corral.
Don’t forget to stop by the ILACSD booth where we will be teaming up with the City of Chula Vista to bring you informative, mini-versions of our Zero Waste Workshops throughout the day! These 30-minute long workshops will highlight different zero waste practices you can implement in your everyday life. The mini-workshops will have hands-on activities to participate in, but supplies are limited. Make sure to get to the booth on time as supplies will be handed out on a first come, first serve basis (limit one per household).

Volunteer at South Bay Earth Day:
Looking to get involved beyond just attending the event? Volunteer with the ILACSD team! We are looking for a team of knowledgeable, helpful “Zero Waste Heroes” to educate guests about how to sort their trash at the event. We want volunteers interested in helping the public and being stewards of the environment; while we’d appreciate volunteers with some background in composting and recycling, you don’t need to know anything to get involved! We will have a training session the morning of the event, and volunteers will receive a “cheat-sheet” of recyclables, compost tips, and other information. We will review everything as a group and answer any questions people have. ILACSD staff will also be on-site, working alongside volunteers, so there will be plenty of opportunities to ask questions and feel comfortable!
