PHOENIX (April, 17, 2013) – Join Keep Phoenix Beautiful in celebrating the 4th annual Earth Day Phoenix in downtown Phoenix at Cesar Chavez Plaza on Monday, April 22, 2013 from 11a.m.-1:30p.m.
The plaza will be filled with nearly 100 exhibitors that include companies, organizations, and city, state and county departments providing information and relevant giveaways with a core message of sustainability. From solar energy, recycling, to gardening our exhibitors are on site to provide resources and information on how you can live sustainably!

“While everyday should be Earth Day, this event should be a reminder of what we can do to make our city and state a better place for all of us to live. Please join us and over 100 exhibitors for a great lunchtime event in downtown Phoenix.” said Tom Waldeck, executive director of Keep Phoenix Beautiful.

Our presenting sponsor, Republic Services, will be onsite with their one-of-a-kind garbage truck grill cooking up 2500 hot dogs for attendees.
“Republic Services has been a leader in creating sustainable practices that address our customer’s needs,” said Mark Clatt, area president for Republic Services. “Our investment in these practices-and our participation in this event-is evidence of our commitment to environmental responsibility every day, not just Earth Day.”
