Sustain Charlotte's 2015 Awards and Earth Day Celebration is Wednesday, April 22, 5:30-8:30 p.m. at the Historic Palmer Building on East 7th Street. Goodwill will be there collecting old devices from attendees. Tickets and details here.

Some of these things end up in landfills and that can be very bad for the environment. On this Earth Day, we look at some possible solutions.
