At 40, Earth Day Is Now Bigger.

I think many of us are not very keen on all these "I-need-a-specific-date-to-celebrate Day", and I'm pretty sure that many of these many think it's just a joke. Let me list down few of the so-called "Day":

Nahh, I'm not gonna waste my time to list it. Just go to Earth Calendar if you're curious.

Anyways, today marks the 40th year celebration, or shall I say "acknowledgment", of the Earth Day.

Funny isn't it? The Earth has been around for about 4.5 billion years, and she just received the Birth Certificate, 40 years ago.


I don't mean to be rude to anyone, especially not to the Mother Earth. Nanti kena panah petir dohh..

So yeah, Ouch Media and EcoKnights (which I'm volunteering for) is organising a special event called the Earth Day Carnival since 15 April 2010, until 25 April 2010. This is happening at Ikano Power Centre, Damansara from 10.00am to 10.00pm.

Y.B. Edward Lee officiated the event on the 17 April 2010

Earth Day Carnival @ Ikano aims to set a clear example for people and businesses how simple lifestyle changes can make a difference. For example, it will feature wide-ranging on-site recycling demonstrations, sales of green products and services and food vendors providing organic and meatless delicious food that require few wasteful utensils. Additional highlights of the day will include environment displays and demonstrations, interactive and educational booths by many local environmental non-profit and small business groups, performances by local and regional musicians, arts and crafts, and a Kids’ Zone for youngsters. More than 15 additional organizations such as the World Wide Fund for Nature (WWF Malaysia), EcoKnights, Tiny Tapir, and Whiz Wits is participating this year.
