Last Saturday was the second annual Earth Day Celebration in Stillwater, MN (our home town)! The event offered fun ways to be Earth-friendly, including river rides by Wahoo! Adventures on kayaks & Gondola Romantica, Stillwater Trolley rides, electric car displays, and countless company & vendor booths up and down the river shoreline.
We were asked to run a SelfEco booth at the event and boy was it fun! Kids were invited to plant tomato seeds in our 4" Garden Pots, to bring home and grow with their families. We were able to help plant about 100 tomato pots by the end of the day, and met a lot of great families along the way.
The event was hosted by the Stillwater Independent Business Association and Sustainable Stillwater. To get more involved in local environment protection efforts, all are welcome at community meetings of Sustainable Stillwater, first Tuesdays, 6:30 to 8:30 p.m., at 333 Main St. N., Suite 201, Stillwater.

We also had a great opportunity to provide 75 2nd graders an Earth Day project! SelfEco donated seed starter pots to Windermere Elementary School located in Upper Arlington, OH. The kids mixed worm castings and soil, filled their pots, and planted seeds in honor of Earth Day. Next month when they take their pots home, they can plant them right in the ground!
