Continuing Earth Month Events

Even though Earth Day is April 22, the eco-friendly fun doesn't have to stop on Friday! There are two events planned for Lafayette on Saturday, April 23 that help you get involved in keeping Lafayette and your home clean.

Household Chemical Collection Day

Lafayette's biannual Household Chemical Collection Day is happening at Cajun Field this Saturday from 8-noon. If you're a resident of the City of Lafayette, you're eligible to bring paint, yard poisons, household cleaners, and this time, your electronic waste! Sponsored by CGI, they'll be collecting computers, printers, cell phones or other electronics.

All collected latex paint will be reblended and recycled. The paint will be packaged for sale at the Lafayette Habitat for Humanity ReStore (now on Johnston Street). All details are on LCG's website.

Festival International Project Front Yard Trash Mob

For the second year, Project Front Yard is organizing a Festival International Trash Mob. Happening at 2:00 on Saturday and Sunday, volunteers register to participate, and then pick up trash for an hour and a half. It's a great way to free our Festival streets of litter that you KNOW is going to be everywhere (as much as I dream of a litter-free Festival).

Everyone who registers (click on the image to visit the Facebook event page with instructions) receives a Project Front Yard t-shirt. Volunteers meet at the tent behind
Scéne Chevron and receive their instructions. It's a mob that does good for the community!

Let's all continue our Earth Day and Earth Month spirit by participating in these community events, and if you're attending Festival, don't forget to geaux green!
