With Earth Day coming up in just a few days, some people were spreading the message of going green Saturday.
High Flyer Specialty Shop started the Keepin’ it Green event last year to help show people different ways of going green.
“We invited a wide variety of community artists, artisans, vendors and nonprofits to come out and share in the way that they keep it green whether it is in the way they make their products, create their art,” High Flyer Specialty Store Adrienne Hagler said. “Even in the foods, they prepare like Scratch does. We are celebrating all that it means to keep it green.”
Multiple info sessions were given to help people learn more ways to be green in their everyday lives.
“I think it’s important to recognize that there are lots of options when it comes to what you put in your body, how you live your life and a way to be kind to your community in a green way,” Hagler said.
Vendors said they’re glad to share their business and things they do to help the environment.
“It’s all about helping the community, making the community better,” P.E.T.S. Marketing Director Lisa Pettijohn said. “P.E.T.S is here doing that for the community. Spay and neuters, low-cost vaccinations. Helping our dogs and cats and we have the flowers that incorporates the two together.”
For those who take part in this event, spreading this kind of information is incredibly important
“It’s really important because we just get this one Earth and it is going to be a place that we want generations of our family to continue to exist then we have to take care of it,” Hagler said. “By taking care of the Eart we are taking care of ourselves and that makes for a generally nicer place to exist.”
Hagler said this event will hopefully continue as long as High Flyer Speciality Store stays open.
