Savannah Earth Day Festival has new Web site

picture-13.pngThe City of Savannah’s Earth Day Festival has a new (at least I think it’s new) Web site. It features forms that can be used by prospective volunteers, exhibitors and sponsors, who want to become involved with the April 18 event in Forsyth Park. Last year’s festival was punctuated by massive recycling collections at the south end of the park and the Savannah Bicycle Campaign’s first ever Savannah Wheelie bike ride, which attracted nearly 300 participants including Mayor Otis Johnson and Chatham County Commission Chairman Pete Liakakis.

The Wheelie will ride again this year and RecycleRama is back too, with organizers accepting paint, electronics, eye glasses, tires and other materials. The Festival is organized by the environmental affairs office of the city’s Water and Sewer Bureau.
