Earth Week Raffle Tickets and Betty Bags... buy them now!

This Saturday kicks off a lot of exciting events around Charlottesville. Don't miss an opportunity to connect with nature, activism, conservation, and community excitement around change starting this Saturday at Charlottesville High School's Track. For the rest of the week I will be highlighting some of the events that are available to you.

But first, Paige of the Blue Ridge Eco-Shop and I procurred some awesome raffle prizes to win at the Eco-Fair on Saturday at 2:45pm! Tickets are $5.00 or Five for $20.00, sold at the Eco-Shop. Winners don't have to be present to win. I just delivered this ultra cool bike today - it folds in half! The rain barrell is also nifty. Here is the complete list of items:

Wilderness Systems Pongo 10 Kayak from Blue Ridge Mountain Sports
Garden Gourmet Compost System from Blue Ridge Eco-Shop
Rain Barrell the Rivanna Conservation Society
Children's Gift Basket from Finn and Thatcher
Dahon Commuter Bicycle (shown above) from Performance Bicycle
Trail Running Shoes from the Charlottesville Running Company
40-passes for the Charlottesville Transit System from CTS

Thanks to these generous local businesses! 100% of the proceeds will help Earth Week 2009!

Oh yes, and many of you have been asking, "Where can I get those fabulous Betty Bags made of 100% recycled cotton?" Now they are at the Blue Ridge Eco-Shop available free for a $9.99 donation, or if you are feeling extra generous a $10.00 donation, to Better World Betty! (Make the checks out to VOP please) Support this grassroots effort while toting your local food items home.
