SLIDESHOW: Framingham Celebrates Earth Day

FRAMINGHAM – Hundreds of Framingham residents learned about ways to make sustainable choices and how to reduce, reuse, and recycle at the 8th Annual Framingham Earth Day Festival on the Framingham Centre Common on Saturday, April 28.

The 4-hour Festival featured more than 100 vendors sharing their environmental message about how you can help make a cleaner and greener world. They included local farms, biking and outdoor recreation, renewable energy, recycling and composting, and health and fitness vendors.

The Kids Korner featured activities about pollinator plants and creating bird feeders with recycled materials. Kids also could be fitted for and receive a free bicycle helmet.

Music was provided by Johnny Fireseed, the New Sound Assembly Chorus, Sweet Wednesday, and The Zoë Krohne & Willie Sordillo Duo with special guest Doug Rich.

The Festival was a Zero Waste event, with all food products and unconsumed food waste composted or recycled. Framingham DPW oversaw the recycling and composting efforts by providing stations for separating recyclable items from compostable items.
