Sustain Charlotte will honor 100 people, businesses, nonprofits, neighborhood organizations and government agencies.
With those events and more, it’s easy to pay homage on Wednesday to the planet. Here are details of a few ways you can spend Earth Day making a difference for the environment:
▪ Sustain Charlotte’s 2015 Awards + Earth Day Celebration: The group is hosting its fourth celebration of sustainability leadership recognizing people and groups that have contributed significantly to the Earth’s preservation.
