This past Saturday was Earth Day 2019 at Huston-Tillotson University. It was amazing to be able to participate in the festival, but it was also great to see so many people and organizations that care about the Earth. There were many popular organizations such as Imperfect Produce, Citizens’ Climate Lobby, and the Texas Campaign for the Environment. However, there were also many companies that I had never heard of, such as Clean Sleep, which is a company that sanitizes mattresses and helps hotels, dorms, and other commercial and residential areas save money and reduce waste. Earth Day was an amazing event to go to, as it allowed me to see and learn about many of the sustainable and eco-friendly organizations in Austin and in Texas. I was also able to learn about up and coming projects that different organizations had, such as the US Green Building Council-Texas Chapter and their education programs/workshops as well as the 2019 USGBC Texas Energy Summit that they will be hosting in November. There were many companies promoting solar and cleaner energy, and it was great to be able to learn so much about what each organization was trying to achieve. Earth Day is the best place to go if one wants to learn more about green initiatives that are happening, and I can’t wait for next year.
