Florida DEP to Celebrate Earth Day at the Capitol

~41st anniversary of Earth Day promotes easy ways to protect the environment~

TALLAHASSEE – The Florida Department of Environmental Protection (DEP), through ongoing efforts to encourage the public to participate in environmental protection at home, school and work, will hold its annual Earth Day at the Capitol on Thursday, April 21, 2011.

More than 40 exhibitors from multiple agencies will share interactive environmental displays and will be available for discussion. Nearly 500 students are registered to attend and will receive a one day pass to any Florida State Park. At DEP’s Easy As One booth, students can pledge to protect our air and water quality, conserve water and reduce waste. Students who volunteer to be interviewed regarding their pledge may be featured on the Easy As One blog.

Easy As One is a public awareness initiative by the Florida Department of Environmental Protection (DEP) that encourages citizens to adopt more sustainable habits that protect air and water quality, conserve water and reduce waste. Easy As One highlights easy actions the public can take to make sustainable practices part of daily life at home, school, work and play.
