Earth Day In Tokyo 2014

Globe-straddling eco event Earth Day has found a particularly receptive audience in Japan, where the two-day gathering in Yoyogi Park consistently draws over 100,000 people each year. It's an opportunity for charities, NPOs and eco-conscious businesses to flaunt their wares and draw new recruits, but many people just go to enjoy the art, vibes and free music. If you're one of the capital's long-suffering vegetarians, too, you owe it to yourself to pay a visit to the Earth Day Kitchen zone for a good selection of herbivorous eats.

From Time Out

Be that as it may, I'm really disappointed by the event's website's main focus on meat eating, and I do not normally want to be pointing fingers, but why let this guy's passion for deer hunting and his "venison cooking" be such a major part of this event?

Bad, bad taste. Mr. C. W. you may have your own likes and dislikes. We all have our favourite issues and concerns. But you do not use Earth Day to promote meat eating. Whatever your reason is.

So sad.

Better Message for Tokyo Earth Day 2014:

Spring is coming… and with it, Earth Day!  How will you celebrate our
beautiful home?  Plant some food, take a child to the park, or come to
Earth Day Tokyo 2014.  I will be celebrating in solidarity!
