Earth Day is on April 22nd and there are numerous events in and around the Cricket Club. Downsview Park ~
This urban green space in the middle of North York will be holding a massive Earth Day celebration like it does every year on Sunday April 25th from 11:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. with a public tree planting for families and educational presentations about native and exotic animals as well as eco-friendly vendors with foods and crafts. Forest Hill Collegiate Institute ~
Take a drive … or a bus! … down Avenue Road to the Forest Hill Collegiate Institute where you can catch the Forest Hill Zen Fashion Show on April 22nd. The fashion show is a showcase of eco-friendly clothing and brands, the proceeds of which go to Evergreen Toronto, an organization that creates and sustains outdoor spaces. Loretto Abbey Catholic Secondary School ~
The students will be cleaning up the school grounds as a part of their Earth Day activities during the afternoon of the 22nd. As always on Earth Day, bring your own reusable coffee cup or travel mug to any of the seven Starbucks locations in the immediate Cricket Club area and have it filled with coffee for free. Most Starbucks locations advertise free coffee only, but getting a free caramel macchiato in your reusable mug is not unheard of. Try your luck and see what happens! This Earth Day also represents the 40th anniversary of the environmental awareness day. Go green, Cricket Club … Go green Toronto !!!
