Join New Planet Beer in two events supporting our environment in Boulder: an Earth Day 5K and a microbrewery festival. This Sunday, New Planet Beer is a sponsor of the Center for Resource Conservation’s 10th Annual Earth Day 5K Run/Walk. Proceeds from our 3R Raspberry Ale (the 3 R’s stand for Reduce, Reuse and Recycle) for 2011 were given to the Center for Resource Conservation for their work engaging and educating Coloradan’s on conserving our natural resources like water, energy and waste.
The Earth Day 5K is also walking it’s talk. It is promoting a “cup free” race and offering participants a “virtual swag bag”. Please join us and help make CRC this race as green as possible.
When: Sunday, April 22nd ~10 a.m. Race starts
Where: University of Colorado Research Park 4001 Discovery Drive, Boulder
What: Support CRC’s mission to empower our community to conserve natural resources
Use your time from the 10th Annual Earth Day 5k to qualify for the first 29 waves of the 2012 Dick’s Sporting Goods BolderBOULDER!
Then join the fun for the 20th annual Microbreweries for the Environment on Friday, April 27th at 8 PM at the Boulder Theater. We’re excited to be returning to the Microbreweries for the Environment benefit: “Think Globally, Drink Locally: 20 Breweries, $2 Pints, 3 bands, 6 causes, 1 Planet”. This marks the 20th anniversary of the event which has raised over $130,000 for local environmental causes. Don’t miss the opportunity to sample some of Colorado’s best beers (especially ours!) for $2/pint or just $12 for a sampler glass. The benefit is a zero-waste and carbon-neutral event and everyone is encouraged to walk, bike, or bus to the event. Doors open and beer tasting starts at 8:00pm, and music will run to 1:00am.
