Celebrate Earth DayOn April 22, 1970, 20 million people across America celebrated the first Earth Day. It was a time when cities were buried under their own smog and polluted rivers caught fire. Now Earth Day is celebrated annually around the globe. Through the combined efforts of the U.S. government, grassroots organizations, and citizens like you, what started as a day of national environmental recognition has evolved into a world-wide campaign to protect our global environment.

You'll see lots of stuff to buy at EarthFair. But there is one difference between EarthFair and the Mall -- the profits from all sales at EarthFair go to support nonprofit organizations (required by city rules concerning sales on public lands). In fact, for many of the smaller non-profits, EarthFair can be a significant source of funding for their activities.
