April 22nd marks one of the most important days in environmental sustainability, promotion, and awareness, and this Earth Day, Gainesville based We Are Neutral is hosting its first annual Earth Day Celebration at First Magnitude Brewing Company. With programs that now span the globe, including the “Women Who Plant” initiative, a program which has brought sustainability and education to women and children in Haiti, the Earth Day Celebration marks just another step that We Are Neutral is taking towards making a positive and environmentally friendly change in the world.

We Are Neutral, a local non-profit organization, collaborates with community partners to provide carbon offsets. “We create those through community improving projects like planting native trees on local conservation lands and energy efficiency upgrades for low income families,” said Brielle Martinez, partnership coordinator and event planner for We Are Neutral. “We provide carbon offsets in our backyard, so it’s local and meaningful” added Anna Sampson, general manager of We Are Neutral.

This Earth Day, We Are Neutral will be taking yet another step in promoting meaningful environmental sustainability through its first annual Earth Day Celebration. The family friendly event, which will take place on April 22nd from 4 pm – 9 pm at First Magnitude Brewing Company, will include interactive workshops, live music, and a farm-to-table dinner, as well as guest speakers. “The whole purpose of the event is to connect people with their passion and part of that is through a part of the event we’re calling the sustainability manifesto, and it’s for attendees to hear local community leaders talk about how they connected and channeled their passion to improve humanity. It’s going to be really inspiring,” said Martinez.

Tickets for the event can be purchased online at www.weareneutral.com/earthday. Presale tickets are currently available for $22 and will be available at the door for $27.
