    Earth Day Comes to BH Farmer’s Market

    By Courier Staff Writer

          Earth Day comes to the Beverly Hills Farmer’s Market, this Sunday, April 10 from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. Visitors will learn how to become a partner in environmental protection by talking to experts on energy-efficient living, alternative-fuel vehicles, landscaping alternatives, fire-wise safety programs. With April being “Earthquake Preparedness Month”, helpful advise will be offered.
          Alternative-fuel vehicles like a hydrogen Hummer, an ethanol-fueled BMW, and a hybrid Ford Escape and Focus will be featured. Southern California Edison’s Energy Star Van will be on hand to teach more about how to buy energy-efficient appliances, home electronics, lighting, windows, office equipment, programmable thermostats, and heating and cooling tips from interactive display exhibits.
          American Society of Landscape Architects will explain about California’s native plants and visitors to the Earth Day celebration will receive a free tree sapling and compost sample.
          Experts will teach how to protect the planet, including representatives from the US Department of Energy, the National Resource Defense Council, the South Coast Air Quality Management District, and the US Green Building Council. A biodegradable tote bag will be given out as a reminder to protect the environment.
          The first International Earth Day was proclaimed in 1969 in San Francisco, and celebrated a year later when former UN Secretary General U Thant rang the Peace Bell.
          Earth Day is the centerpiece of an annual global holiday that continues to bring unity in achieving how people plan and think towards the restoration and renewal of life on this planet.
          For additional information, contact the Beverly Hills Public Works Department at 310-285-2467.
