ACAP CB Celebrates Earth Week with Books, Green Drinks & 20 Minute Make Over


Sydney, NS - ACAP CB is inviting Cape Bretoners to celebrate Earth Day with
a whole week of events. With the snow melting and sun shining, it's a great
time of year to get active and learn more about our great outdoors. There
are new events such as Thursday's Eco-Reno's & Rebates talk followed by
Eco-Trivia at Governor's Pub, but also includes the classics such as the 20
Minute Make-Over. Everyone is encouraged to participate in Earth Week 2012. 


Sunday, April 22nd is Earth Day. ACAP CB is encouraging everyone to get
outside and enjoy our Earth. Hike, bike or do a community clean-up: anything
connecting you to nature!

Monday, April 23rd marks the start of the Book & Magazine exchange at ACAP
CB. Everyone is invited to bring in books and magazines you'd like to share
and pick up a new-to-you read!


On Tuesday, April 24th, give your lawn a boost, chemical-free, with the
Green Grass Seed Giveaway from 12 to 1:30 pm at Rona, 199 Townsend Street,
Sydney. ACAP staff will be giving away a natural spot treatment - grass
seed. Information on the provincial non-essential pesticide regulations will
also be available.


Wednesday, April 25th is a great day for a walking break. Instead of a
coffee, take a refreshing walk for your afternoon break. Join the group at
the CBRM Civic Centre (320 Esplanade, Sydney) at 3 pm for a 15 minute walk
around downtown. You never know who might drop by!


Thursday, April 26th is jam-packed with fun and eco-information. Visit ACAP
at 7 pm to learn about the latest energy efficient renovations and available
rebates with 'A Bright Idea' talk by Home Energy Manager, Bruce Young. Then
you can test your eco-trivia with Green Drinks & Eco-Trivia from 8:30 to 10
pm at Governor's Pub (233 Esplanade). Get a team of four, try a local brew
and enjoy three rounds of trivia, just $5 per team.


On Friday, April 27th, the 20 Minute Make Over returns. Offices, classes and
community groups can register their team and litter clean-up location with
ACAP for the most fast-paced and fun clean-up. Last year, there were over
1,400 people participating across Cape Breton. Each team takes a before and
after picture to show the difference 20 minutes can make. There will also be
an announcement on Friday of the latest pick in the Pages for the Planet
book club. Swing by ACAP CB to pick up your copy for a $5 deposit.


For more information on any of these events or to register for the 20 Minute
Make Over, contact ACAP Cape Breton at 567-1628 or visit www.acapcb.ns.ca.

Cape Breton is a non-profit, charitable community organization. Located at
