The Recycling and Waste Reduction District of Porter County invites residents from Lake, Porter and LaPorte counties and beyond to become inspired and be entertained as well as educated at the Northwest Indiana Earth Day 10th Anniversary Celebration.

The event will be held from 9 a.m.-4 p.m. Saturday, April 18, in the Main Expo, Expo East and 4-H buildings of the Porter County Expo Center, 215 E. Division Rd. in Valparaiso. Admission and parking for the event are free.

The three-building Celebration will feature the brand-new Re-Think Art Competition and Exhibition with artwork made out of 100 percent recycled materials; dozens of exhibitors that will engage guests and connect them with nature and environmentally-friendly products and services; two stages of entertainment and education; a bike drive for the benefit of Working Bikes; the Great Cloth Diaper Change for the Guinness World Record; alternate fuel vehicle displays; and much more.

The main stage will feature Silly Safaris live animal shows; music and fun with Dumpster Drummers; and games and prizes with the Lake County Solid Waste Management Green Team. Additional learning opportunities on the small 4-H building stage will include seminars about vermicomposting; repurposing; beekeeping; renewable energy; and the Indiana Dunes National Lakeshore Fire Management program featuring Smokey Bear.

Bring your old and unusable bikes and bike parts to Earth Day for a Bike Drive to benefit Working Bikes, an organization that donates used bicycles to those in need in developing countries and in low-income communities in Chicago. The first 20 bicycle donors will receive $50 off new Trek Bicycles, thanks to Trek Bicycle Store Schererville.

Highlights of the Celebration include Build Your Own Birdhouse with Boy Scout Troop 907, supplies limited; rides in NIPSCO’s electric car; free reusable bags to the first 300 families; tree saplings for completed event surveys; yoga at noon with the Lotus Center; “bingo” game for a chance to win Trek bicycles and other prizes; and much more. Secure document shredding service will not be available this year.

Additionally, the third annual school/class rain barrel design contest will be judged at the Celebration. Thirty barrels from schools throughout Northwest Indiana will be on display, vying to win the grand prizes of classroom scholarships, sponsored by Bucher Construction. All Earth Day attendees can vote on their favorite rain barrels.

Food will be supplied by Suzie’s Cafe & Catering and Le Fountain Health Institute. For a complete listing of programs and exhibitors, visit the Recycling and Waste Reduction District of Porter County’s website, www.ItMeanstheWorld.org or call 219-465-3819 for more information.

The 2015 Northwest Indiana Earth Day Celebration is supported by the following generous sponsors: NIPSCO; Metro Recycling; Northern Indiana Regional Planning Commission; Duneland 28; Pratt Industries; Lakeshore Public Television; and many others.
