Earth festivals help to educate people about the many things we can all do to think more sustainably, but the people who put them together deserve lots of applause for mounting these enormously important events.
Not only are these organizers tasked with getting the unpleasant word out that we're trashing our home - they have to make these events entertaining! People won't come if you don't offer them a good time. From where I stood, it was very clear that everyone was having a great time in Secaucus.
Next Saturday we'll be at another Earth fair - the EarthFest Overpeck for The Hackensack Riverkeeper and Bergen County Parks.
Come on by and I'll sing you a song or read you a story.
