EVENT REGISTRATON – Vendors/Exhibitors

The theme for Earth Day 2018 is End Plastic Pollution. We will have vendors that will support the theme, but others that include recycling, hybrid vehicles, solar energy, water education, gardening, and more. There will be a designated kids activity area and music and art as well.

About our theme: “Plastics litter our cities and oceans, and growing evidence shows how they contribute to health problems in humans and animals. By 2050, there will be more plastic than fish in the world’s oceans! Plastic coagulates into great floating “garbage patches” that cover large areas of the Pacific. Plastics wash up on beaches and can be found in the stomachs of more than half the world’s sea turtles and nearly all of its marine birds. If plastic pollution was bagged up and arranged across all of the world’s shorelines, we could build a plastic wall around every shoreline and the sea. This is a problem we can help solve by cleaning up plastic trash, drastically reducing the amount of plastic used and recycling 100% of the rest.” (Source: Earth Day Network)

The intent of Earth Day Fort Walton Beach is to educate the public and increase awareness about environmental and social issues at local, regional, and global levels in an effort to engage, empower, and encourage public involvement towards positive resolutions. You do not have to be part of the theme, but do need to “ecological/environmental” in nature to be part of the event.
