Dimmitt Automotive Group was a proud sponsor of the 2015 Earth Day Celebration. On April 18th, 2015, St. Petersburg celebrated Earth Day with its second annual festival held in beautiful South Straub Park. The city joined more than 190 countries, over one billion people, to commemorate the birth of the modern environmental movement that began in 1970.
The festival was held from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. with the primary goal of educating to create healthy, sustainable communities. Visitors met companies that are leading members of the green/sustainability movement and heard from speakers on current topics affecting our earth.
While this is only the second Earth Day St. Pete festival, the city is leading the way in Florida by implementing strategies for a sustainable future. St. Petersburg is the first city in the state to receive the Green Building Coalition’s Green City designation, and has been recognized for energy conservation, recycling, water conservation, fuel efficiency, landscaping and preservation of open spaces, and other environmental programs.
Proceeds from Earth Day St. Pete 2015 went to support the installation of Solar Panels to provide clean energy to the building shared by the Florida Aquarium and the Blue Ocean Film Festival downtown St. Petersburg.
