Earth Day Celebrations in Austin

Austin celebrated Earth Day yesterday at downtown’s Republic Park.

Ten Thousand Villages was a sponsor and had a booth with a generous selection of our recycled products–the recycled paper hot mat from the Philippines and galimoto wire bicycle from Kenya were popular items.
