Earth Day does not really need to be a holiday in San Francisco. This is the city that spearheaded the effort to eliminate plastic bags from grocery stores, set goals to produce zero waste by 2020, and required new buildings over 10 stories tall to have solar panels. Last month, Mayor Ed Lee and Supervisor Katy Tang introduced legislation to require all new buildings in the city be 100 percent “Electric Vehicle Ready.” Yet, there are still those in the city who feel it is important to spend 24 hours formally celebrating our big blue marble of a home planet.
    
The Earth Day San Francisco street festival will be held at the Civic Center Plaza from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. on April 22. Attendees of the event will be able to travel through the plaza to try locally grown and sustainable food, sample art in praise of Mother Earth, hear music powered by solar-paneled stages, and check out the latest trends in green fashion. See http://www.earthdaystreetfest.org/ for more information about the street festival.
    
The 2017 festival around the city will honor the 50th anniversary of the city’s Summer of Love, the 1967 season in San Francisco where as many 75,000 to 100,000 young people poured primarily into Haight Ashbury in celebration of counterculture. Organizers promise that the 2017 event “will be the most educational, impactful and festive Earth Day Celebration to date.” To learn more about Earth Day San Francisco, go to http://earthdaysf.com/.
