North Carolina State University will celebrate the 40th Anniversary of Earth Day with a vastly diverse event located at the heart of campus.

The University Sustainability Office will host a day full of games, exhibits and vendors on the Brickyard, Thursday, April 22. Earth Day 2010 will feature over 80 vendors and exhibits, making it the largest such event ever on campus.

Featured highlights include the Campus Farmer’s Market, a Clean Cities Expo, a Free Trade Bazaar, the RE corridor, as well as student-led recycling and sustainability games. In addition, the Sustainability Office will be raffling off a Samsung ‘Reclaim’ phone. The ‘Reclaim’ is the first phone made from 100% biodegradable materials.

Other items to be raffled off include tickets to see Widespread Panic at Time Warner Cable Music Pavilion, passes for two at Mission Valley Cinemas and iTunes gift certificates supplied by the SmartCommute Challenge.

David Dean, outreach & communications coordinator, said, “An event of this magnitude would not be possible without the generous support of our partners Energy Management at NC State, University Dining, the Union
Activities Board, NC State Class Ring Collection, Sprint and last but definitely not least, Waste Reduction and Recycling at NC State.”

NC State Earth Day 2010 kicks off at 10 a.m. Thursday, April 22, 2010 on the Brickyard and will wrap up at 3 p.m.
