Auntie Litter's Annual Earth Day Parade and Celebration

Auntie Litter's Annual Earth Day Parade and Celebration

April 22
Auntie Litter's Annual Earth Day Parade and Celebration are held each Earth Day, April 22, in Birmingham, Ala. The character "Auntie Litter," dressed in distinctive stars and green-and-white stripes, is the mascot for an environmental education and awareness program that promotes its green campaign through the Earth Day event.
The message of Auntie Litter is to conserve natural resources, eliminate litter, and to embrace the three Rs: reduce, reuse, and recycle. During Auntie Litter's parade, hundreds of schoolchildren and supporters march for a cleaner Earth. The accompanying celebration features educational exhibits, live entertainment, science demonstrations, and costume competitions. Auntie Litter, Inc., a non-profit organization, was founded in 1990. The Earth Day parade and celebration have been held each year since 1992.
