Rhode Island Earth Day 2016 events

Here in Rhode Island, we’re all about environmental conservation. That’s why there’s plenty of Rhode Island Earth Day 2016 events for you and the whole family to enjoy. As a big promoter of safe, clean living, we here at Speedcraft Volkswagen encourage you to get out there this week and do your part to conserve the environment.

Since it was first established back in 1970, Earth Day has come a long way to become a globally celebrated holiday. In many instances, it’s used as a time to teach children about nature, the earth and environmental conservation. If you’re looking for an educational, fun activity for the whole family, or just want to get involved in the community, take a look below at some of the available Earth Day Events.
