APPLETON, WI -- People in Appleton are taking advantage of the warm weather with a wrap-up to Earth Day celebrations for their Habitat for Humanity Restore.
It's the 8th annual event. There were hands-on activities for all ages to learn about sustainable living.
More than 50 businesses and groups set up presentations and booths.
“We believe it’s just a message going forward, people need to take time to care about the earth,” said Matthew Daniels, General Manager of the Appleton Restore. “And live more sustainable so our kids will have a great place to live, just like we do.”
The Restore opened in 2005. They accept donations of building materials and resell them to the public at a discount. All profits go to Habitat for Humanity.
