With just a few weeks until Brisbane’s environmental festival, Green Earth Day takes place, the not for profit environmental awareness Green Earth Group is preparing to guide others towards planting the seeds of change needed to ensure that we are protecting our environment for future generations.
Green Earth Day will take place on Saturday 12 March at the Albion Peace Centre: 102 McDonald Road, Windsor. This wide ranging family-friendly festival includes everything you need for a great day out such as live bands, performers and roving entertainment, green cuisine, speakers and demonstrations, kids’ zone, video zone, art and fashion displays, plus market stalls from many local companies including not for profit organizations.
Green Earth Day is a free, family orientated, community event, which aims to stimulate awareness by bringing environmental, green, health and lifestyle, cruelty-free, recycling and sustainable issues into the public eye. Green Earth Day is being organized by the not-for-profit environmental awareness, Green Earth Group who aim to provide education and encouragement to the community, showing others how to make simple changes to support the health and integrity of our environment and the world we leave for generations to come.
President and Founder of Green Earth Group, Leigh-Chantelle Koch who also organizes and promotes Green Earth Day says, “The time has come for everyone to step up and take responsibility for our actions. With the devastation that Queensland, Australia and other countries are experiencing, we are being called to action, to work together to create the changes that our universe is crying out for.” The passion, commitment and dedication one person has, when combined with other like-minded people is, according to Leigh-Chantelle, what makes the magic really happen.
“My goal is to encourage people from all backgrounds to be involved in a positive way to help our environment,” says Leigh-Chantelle. “People see that Green Earth Group is coming from a sincere and positive place and want to get involved from the grassroots up in helping us enact the positive changes that are needed in our society.” “We have had an overwhelming response from people young and old who want to be involved,” states Leigh-Chantelle. “Every single person involved with Green Earth Day volunteers their time, energies and skills to our yearly environmental event.”
Green Earth Group information stalls can be found at some of Brisbane’s markets and will also be participating in the St Patrick’s Day parade with a recycled, pedal-powered float, created by one of their volunteers, Justin Ryan. Together with many volunteers from Brisbane and beyond, the Green Earth Day team are united to form a strong grassroots, community event where people from all areas of the community are invited to join in with having fun in the name of green earth education. It’s easy being green and Leigh-Chantelle and her comrades are here to show you how.
