Hold an Earth Day Dinner to Celebrate & Support the Environment

Joseph Coupal - Wednesday, April 16, 2014

If you’re looking for an easy, fun way to show your support for the environment and eat healthy on Earth Day (April 22), we’ve got just the thing—an Earth Dinner! After all, every holiday has its own food tradition except Earth Day, until now. Start by planning a dinner with as many local, seasonal, and organic ingredients as possible – supporting local and organic farmers is a great way to celebrate Earth Day.

Then, get to know the story behind your food. Where did it come from? Who were the farmers? What is the history of each dish’s recipe, or the food itself? Finally, have some meaningful conversation about food, sustainable farming, and your own connection to the food, the earth, and each other.

And always recycle at home, school, work or play. Check out the Fibrex Group’s line of recycling containers and recycled plastic lumber site furnishings. We are the manufacturer’s rep for sustainable Play Mart Playgrounds in the mid-Atlantic. Whatever your needs, Fibrex can offer a collection or a play solution for you. Just check us out at or give us a call at 1.800.346.4458.

Work. Play. Recycle.
