Earth Day is April 22nd and my daughter Tara loves to clean-up around the community on that day. Are you looking for a way to make a difference in your area?

Here's a great way and it's happening the week after Earth Day. On April 29th, it's the 29th annual Earth Fest at SUNY Broome. More then 1,000 visitors are expected to attend and vendors and exhibitors are needed. Here's a chance for your local business or non-profit to help make a positive change in our area and the environment.

Earth Fest will be happening in the Student Center gym at SUNY Broome from 10 am to 4 pm. The festival will feature more then 50 Earth-friendly exhibitors along with the Binghamton Zoo ZooMobile.

There will be face-painting, seed packets, children's hands-on activities and so much more. Go here to register and get your business or non-profit involved, it's your chance to not only make a change to the environment but change the way people think about the environment.

This is an event where the kids can have fun and learn at the same time, talk about your win-win. Here's an added bonus: You can enjoy a $2.00 discount on your Binghamton Zoo admission later in the day on April 27th. Go here to find out more about Earth Fest.
