Better World Betty Hosts Eco-Friendly Picnic

August 3, 2008

Pen Park played host Sunday afternoon to the first-ever Better World Betty Earth-Friendly Picnic.

Kids got to take part in a scavenger hunt and face painting, while parents learned about recycling practices and got a live acoustic performance from local band, Trees on Fire.

Organizers of the event say there are very simple ways to make a difference in your own home.

"A lot of the one-time use things that people still use: disposable whatever, whether it be cups or plastic bags, to try to do a zero waste event, though challenging, it's doable," said Better World Betty Director, Teri Kent.
