The official site of Earth Day Savannah

This year, the Savannah-Chatham Sustainability Coalition (SCSC) is partnering with local nonprofits to co-coordinate and publicize “Earth Day Savannah Month.” This will be a sustainable and safe way for businesses and environmental nonprofits to connect with the public and strengthen the environmental network in our community. The month-long event will be a celebration of Earth Day in April, featuring a collective of virtual and small, in-person events.

Earth Day Savannah has been the city’s largest environmental outreach event for the past 19 years.  Due to the pandemic and canceling large community events, there was no festival last year or this year.  However, with over 20 environmental nonprofits in our area and the City of Savannah’s commitment to 100% Renewable Energy by 2035, it is important for Savannah to celebrate Earth Day. 

The Savannah Earth Day Festival served  an important opportunity for local government, businesses, nonprofits, and community groups to connect with the public and each other.  We take pride that it was the largest educational event in conjunction with Earth Day in Georgia.

Environmental Nonprofit Organizations

During the month of April, over 20 environmental and community nonprofits are hosting events throughout Chatham County.  This month-long event will be a celebration of Earth Day in April, featuring a collective of virtual and small, in-person events.  Nonprofits will customize and plan their own “Make Earth Day Every Day” events.

The overall intention of EDS 2021 is to build community awareness and support to protect our planet by supporting our city and local environmental nonprofits as they help our community transition to 100% clean, renewable energy.

Savannah artist, Joanne Morton is inviting the public to be a part of her community engagement art project, The Manifesting Mobile .  The Manifesting Mobile’s aim is to unite the community by sharing people’s visions for a healthy planet by building a large-scale, hanging art mobile.   The Manifesting Mobile will be displayed the week of Earth Day (April 22nd) for the public to view.

Earth Day Savannah Sponsors

Earth Day Savannah is expanding and growing because of the support of our generous sustaining sponsors.   These businesses see the value in collaboration with community nonprofits to protect our natural resources, find solutions for climate change and heal our planet.
SCSC would like to recognize Tate Ellington for the  art for our sponsorship levels.     To view her work: TATE ELLINGTON

Growing up around Savannah and Tybee, she has always been inspired by the historical landmarks and southern coastal living. Influenced by children’s illustrated books, Tate taught herself to paint with ink and watercolor. She creates “fun perspective” free-hand paintings of local attractions and southern-inspired scenes and flowers.  Illustrated paintings prints and postcards are available at Savannah and Tybee shops and galleries as well as weekend vendor markets.
