Our Ecological CommitmentEarth Day Coalition strives to minimize the ecological impact of all our special events. In partnership with our generous sponsors and community partners, Earth Day Coalition is working very hard to make this evening's celebration as people and planet friendly as possible. Stay tuned for details on 2009's Climate Change Solutions. Last year saw the use of fully-recyclable plates, cups, and other dinner-ware, a comprehensive recycling plan led by student's at Garrett Morgan High School (only 2 small bags of unrecycled garbage were generated by over 350 guests!), the serving of wine from the world's only solar-powered vineyard, and wind energy credits were used to offset power consumed during the event.

Community Partners and HostsOther sponsors of the event include: WCLV 104.9 Classical FM. Balanced Living Magazine, Cleveland Scene, EcoWatch Ohio, and The Cleveland Orchestra.

This year's event will be hosted by Rebecca Reynolds of Green Clean and Planet Green, local artist and interactive media expert Ann Marie Bergman, and Bill O'Connell of WCLV 104.9 FM Radio.
