Earth Day falls on Friday, April 22nd and with Washington’s “1 week of Spring and straight into summer” climate, if I were a bookie, I’d guess the day will be a hot one.Ã‚Â Or rainy. Or hot and rainy. But as usual, there will more than enough activities in which you can participate in the great outdoors rain or shine.Ã‚Â By the way, if your organization is planning a special event for Earth Day, send it in and we might share it with the Punch Community.
Here’s one that we just received:
To celebrate Earth Day, Commissary at 1443 P Street, NW, one of only 8 food service establishments in DC certified by the Green Restaurant Association, will be celebrating Earth Day by offering guests the opportunity to go green with Clean Currents,
an independent supplier of wind and solar power that also supplies Commissary, and its sister restaurants, Logan Tavern, Grillfish and The Heights.
Basically, Clean Currents will be signing up local residents to make the switch to more eco friendly energy methods.Ã‚Â Clean Currents is the area’s leading independent green energy company and has over 7,000 residential and 500 business customers. They make it easy to make the switch over to wind power.
On Friday, April 22nd from 10 am-5 pm, bring your electric bill to Commissary and you will have the option to make the switch to Clean Currents wind power. A drawing will be held every 30 minutes with prizes for winners.Ã‚Â Those that switch can congratulate themselves with a Clean Currents Cosmo for switching to wind power or simply bringing their electric bill.Ã‚Â If that’s not enough, anyone who signs up for Clean Currents wind power on Earth Day will receive a $15 EatWell Gift Card, thanks to the power company.
Wait there’s more!Ã‚Â Commissary will also offer a free cup of coffee to those who bring their own travel mug and 10% off all to go orders when a guest brings his or her own bag or when not utilizing any bag at all.
