The artwork was on display as a show of support for Earth Day, which was recognized around the world yesterday.

Rochelle Thomas is a Live Smart Business Energy Advisor. She says the event provided an opportunity to teach young people about the importance of recycling.

“It allows us to raise awareness and educate them on taking care of our earth.”

There was a wide variety of artwork on display at the event, including butterflies made from magazine pages, disks that have been made into ornaments, and plastic bottles that were made into sun catchers. 

The Northern Environmental Action Team also had their Blendercycle event: a bicycle with a blender behind it. People at the event took turns pedalling the bike, which in turn was making fruit smoothies for the people in attendance.

JD Fitzgeralds also provided appetizers for yesterday’s Earth Day event.

There are two more Earth Day events scheduled for this week, including the world premiere of a documentary about climate science, called “Thin Ice”, in the NPCC’s multi-purpose room on Wednesday and an afternoon of family activities from 3 to 5 p.m. Friday at the Fort St. John Library.
