Planted for the Planet is a project of SEAREI.org, a 501c3 nonprofit organization.
Join this first annual event in the coming together of two things that affect us all;
Eating and our Environment!
Earth Day will kick off a 4-day community collaboration to bring awareness that increasing plant based meals is one of the most impactful things we can do as individuals to reduce our impact on our environment and the planet.
Over 15 Seacoast restaurants will be featuring plant rich Earth Day Entrée specials.
Local chefs will provide plant based recipes for at-home creation.
Two expert packed, local celebrity panels presented online and open to all will bookend the event.
Thursday April 22nd & Sunday April 25th at 7pm on Zoom
HOW TO PARTICIPATE:
- Visit any (or all) of the participating Planted For The Planet restaurants throughout the Earth Day weekend, order the Earth Day Entrée, take a photo of your meal and post to social media with #PlantedForThePlanet.
- Create your own Earth Day Entrée at home, take a photo of your meal and post to social media with #PlantedForThePlanet.
