Are you ready to do better in your community, Raleigh? Well, here’s your chance to make a difference. We are teaming up with The Great Raleigh Cleanup for an Earth Day Extravaganza on Sunday, April 21 in Moore Square, and you’re invited.

With a “do better” mentality, this all-day celebration will be filled with service, activities, and vendors to show support for our environment, highlight ways to become more eco-friendly, and raise funds for our friends at TGRC who have removed more than 107,379 pounds of litter from the City of Oaks since 2020.

The sustainable fun will kick off in the morning with a run hosted by FleetFeet, followed by a relaxing flow on the lawn led by YogaSix. Next, TGRC and RALtoday will pick up trash around the city with help from volunteers during a community cleanup (psst… this could be you).

Sign up to volunteer and show up for some environmentally friendly fun.

After beautifying downtown, you’ll want to take a walk through our Earth Day Market to meet local environmentally conscious vendors like Haven Farm + Fillaree, grab a bite from a food truck, and to participate in demonstrations and a massive plant swap with The Houseplant Hippie.

DJ Handsome Robb will keep the good vibes going by providing the tunes, and the day will come to a close with popcorn and a showing of “Wall-E” on the lawn.

So, can we count on you to join us the day before Earth Day on Sunday, April 21? Show your interest.

Already have plans? Don’t worry, you can show your support for this nonprofit by volunteering at an upcoming cleanup or by donating to help reach TGRC’s goal of $100,000 to keep truckin’ along... but we do hope to see you there.

Bonus: If you’re a sustainable, local business looking to participate in our Earth Day Market or want to become a sponsor for the event, let us know.
