Berkeley Earth Day is an exciting day of inspiring, life changing fun!

Berkeley Earth Day brings the Bay Area environmental community together to celebrate our vision for a sustainable future. Get inspired and connect with eco-minded comrades and learn how you can further reduce your impact on the planet and have fun doing it! This event features dozens of vendors sharing their delicious sustainable foods, eco-friendly products, and epic activism. Nosh at the delicious veggie food court and hear educational and earth-friendly talks from experts, activists, enjoy uplifing music, and more! Compassionate Living, a non-profit organization based in the Bay Area, is proud to be the sponsor of this event.

Join us for inspiring speakers, music, upcycled crafts, bamboo bikes, veggie food and much more!  

Berkeley Earth Day is excited to host the Wild & Scenic Film Fest. These films transform viewers to become committed activists, dedicated to saving our increasingly threatened planet and include an optional series of short films for children.
