On Saturday, April 20th celebrate the 49th year of Earth Day in San Francisco’s sunny Mission District. The theme for this year’s Earth Day is “Celebrate the Green New Deal”.
Talks, demos, and workshops will go throughout the day with topics including conservation, climate change, recycling, and the intersection of politics, technology, and the environment.
Caring about the environment and gaining knowledge about our human impact on the earth is more important than ever. We are working to create our most educational, impactful and festive Earth Day celebration yet. There will be booths by non-profits providing information about environmental causes and solutions to pollution, transportation issues, health care, technology, and the environment, solar-powered stages by SolSolutions, and other topics relevant to leading a healthy and meaningful life in the modern age. Earth Day SF provides a platform for compassionate ways to deal with social issues, fact-based science with informative speaker panels throughout the day, cutting edge green technology displays and demos, and non-profits that are working to help sustain the planet.
Join us for this FREE event on Valencia Street between 19th & 20th in the heart of the Mission District San Francisco.
Earth day does not support any specific candidates and or make any endorsements. We wish to inform the public with a variety of speakers, some of whom are involved in politics, others who work in scientific research, some who run environmentally focused non-profits, and others we think are of interest.
More speakers to be announced soon

2018 Fashion Designers
Creative Raw Fashion
Santa Cruz, California
When we wear something, we imbue it with our energy. It comes to tell a story of our essence. Scattered like leaves fallen from a tree, the lost discarded pieces, but unlike leaves, fabric takes much longer to decompose or never does; Fast fashion is taxing our environment.
As a child, I loved the design, and would constantly be creating with scraps of old clothes. As an adult learning of the waste, child labor, and poisonous chemicals that go into modern fashion left me with little to no interest to be a part of it until my trip to Europe.
One of my challenges was when I was invited to the Big Sur Fashion show, whose theme was no fabric, only recycled materials.
I began to make dresses from wine corks, branches, leaves, anything I could find. A friend gifted me her chicken feathers and I turned them into dresses. Toured around for years doing fashion art shows and creating one of a kind fabric pieces always ethically sourced and sustainably made. You can see my works in the store at Wallflower Boutique in Santa Cruz CA.

B. Unique One-of-a-kind statement clothing for everyone
San Francisco, California
Bay Area native, “B” is a thrift store fashionista and a couture fashion enthusiast. Being raised on a farm with limited stores and funds to spend, she struggled with expressing herself through clothes at school.
Being the creative, non-wasteful wanting to make a statement type, she began seeking out thrift stores for unique pieces to manipulate and recreate to make into the edgier looks she fell in love with on the runway.
B now travels throughout the United States and around the world collecting second hand clothing to recreate couture inspired pieces; one-of-a-kind statement clothing for everyone!
B believes everyone should express themselves freely while also helping to preserve the environment.
My attitude and my fashion are the same. Be whatever you want to be!
