Environmentalists, families, and those looking to make Framingham a better place attended the Annual Earth Day Festival on the Framingham Centre Common on a gorgeous sunny Saturday afternoon.
Started by Framingham resident Donna Merritt 6 years ago, this year’s event had the most vendors and crafters and likely the largest crowd ever.
There was information on gardening and recycling. Hanson’s Farm in Framingham was selling herbs and tomato plants.
Attendees could learn about how wi-fi affects their health and why Framingham should impose a plastic bag ban, like Cambridge.
Framingham resident Brigitte Griffin, walked around the festival covered in 500 plastic bags to represent the average number each person brings home from stores each year. She is part of a group that wants Framingham Town Meeting members to adopt a ban on the bags.
Attendees could also get a message, learn about yoga, reiki, get a henna tattoo and shop several local crafters.
