The Harvest Market in Montrose will recognize Earth Day this Sunday with several Earth-friendly and green options that will help lessen carbon footprints.
The idea came from Mark Sheridan and Steve Pierce of the Harvest Market.
“Mark and I were talking about the Market and thought we should do something for Earth Day,” Pierce said. “It was as simple as that.”
The event will be an addition to the regular Harvest Market and take place in the Montrose Travel parking lot at 2349 Honolulu Ave. There will be demonstrations on bee keeping and how to turn unwanted T-shirts into reusable grocery bags. Bob Smith Toyota will have some green vehicles on hand and there will be booths on energy saving techniques and energy alternatives like solar.
“We will also have stamps with ink made from organic juices that kids can stamp with,” Pierce said.
The Harvest Market is from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. in the 2300-2400 blocks of Honolulu Avenue in Montrose.
