Support Columbia Teen Efforts to Save the Planet on Saturday, May 14

Recycle your old electronics, denim and sneakers at Save the Planet Day

 The Columbia Association (CA) Teen Advisory Committee is coordinating Save the Planet Day on Saturday, May 14 from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m., immediately following the Columbia Archives’ BikeAbout event at the Town Center Lakefront. The event will feature green-minded vendors, entertainment, food and children’s activities. Residents are encouraged to bring old cell phones, digital cameras, iPods, MP3 players, denim and sneakers to recycle. There will be no shredding truck as previously advertised.

Bicycling and walking for recreation and as alternative transportation are two key factors of environmental sustainability. That is why Save the Planet Day will be held following the 11th annual BikeAbout and Town Center Walking Tour, an event that shows the viability of bike transportation on Columbia’s extensive pathways, while uncovering the area’s historic and natural beauty. Participants in the BikeAbout may begin the ride anytime between 9:30 and 10:30 a.m. The Town Center walking tour will begin at 10:30 a.m. For more information, please visit

CA’s Teen Advisory Committee is made up of dedicated local high school students who bring new and exciting opportunities to the teen community in Howard County. The committee was chartered by the CA Board seven years ago and continues to sponsor programs, activities and fundraising opportunities for teens in Howard County. For more information on the Teen Advisory Committee, please call 410-715-5523.
