Visitors can receive free tree seedlings and basil plants courtesy of the Environmental Commission, as well as other giveaways and are invited to bring chairs and blankets to relax on the Amphitheater lawn. Washington Township Mayor Barbara Wallace said, “I am encouraging everyone to join the Washington Township Environmental Commission in collecting gently-used sneakers, boots and dress shoes, which will be donated to poor families in third world countries, at the Earth Day Celebration on April 26, 2014.”
In addition to the day-long activities, the following items will be collected for re-use and recycling: Cell phones, eyeglasses, hearing aids, printer cartridges, used postage stamps & spring plants, which will be replanted in the Park.
The 2014 Earth Day Celebration is sponsored by the Washington Township Environmental Commission. “We’re asking our visitors to bring a donation of a non-perishable food item or toiletry for Mother’s Cupboard food bank and/or an item for the animal shelters, such as food, cat litter and cleaning supplies,” said WTEC member, Anne Hastings
