It’s Earth Day at Soda City Market on Main Street

It’s an Earth Day celebration at the Soda City Market on Main Street! On Saturday, April 21, from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m., learning tables highlighted by activities, presentations and demonstrations incorporating an Earth Day theme will be on display. Market attendees will have an opportunity to learn more about the importance of sustainability, energy conservation and habitat preservation in key areas, such as air and water quality; species preservation (bats and bluebirds); composting; and the use of rain barrels, recycling and solar energy. Bluebird houses and fun upcycled items will be available for sale, and free rain barrels will be provided by the city of Columbia for city residents.

There is still time for schools interested in hosting a learning table to apply and register to attend. Participating schools to date include: Catawba Trail Elementary School, Green Charter School of the Midlands, Harmony School, and River Bluff High School.

For more information, contact Sonoco Recycling Education Director Jane Hiller at 803-779-0608 or Jane.Hiller@Sonoco.com.
