Earth and its environment are one of the most important aspects of sustaining human life. With so much change in the climate due to a variety of issues, there is also a change on a more individual level. What we do as a single human is enough to make a difference. Earth Day 2022 encourages us to create a prosperous and sustainable future by investing in the health of our planet and creating a green future.

The Luminary is also encouraging the 7 R’s — Recycle, Refuse, Reduce, Re-use, Repair, Re-gift, Recover — to help keep the Earth healthy and not waste any of its resources. By taking part in Earth Day or celebrating with Luminary’s month-long initiative, residents can do their part in making the Earth a better and more sustainable place.

Innovative Ideas for Change
One of the most exciting Earth Day events in Baltimore, and one of the most innovative developments to combat pollution in Baltimore’s Inner Harbor, is Mr. Trash Wheel. As a semi-autonomous trash interceptor, this solar and hydro-powered machine funnels trash through his “mouth” (which is in reality a conveyor!) and enters a dumpster that sits on a separate floating barge from Mr. Trash Wheel. Since it is hard to separate plastics from other trash in the water, the trash is incinerated to create electricity, thereby recycling trash in a novel way!
On April 23rd, you can celebrate Mr. Trash Wheel’s birthday and Earth Day together! For 8 years, Mr. Trash Wheel has been cleaning the Inner Harbor and keeping the environment clean with his contemporary design. Each ticket includes a Mr. Trash Wheel fanny pack, a birthday cookie, some fun craft activities, and an encounter with a real python! For a fun event that really brings together a community of environmental advocates, Mr. Trash Wheel’s Earth Day Birthday is not one to miss!
