From 4 to 6 p.m., Junk King will perform at Third Eye Brewing in Sharonville. You will get 15% off your meal if you carry old gadgets, regardless of their condition.

"I said something that can plugin and then something that has a battery, so computer computers, keyboards, laptops, ipads, and video game consoles are just some basic household items," CEO Jack Brendamour said.

Junk King, according to Brendamour, partners with scores of non-profit groups to recycle usable pieces.

Multiple Business Initiatives 

They also assist organizations such as St. Vincent de Paul and Matthew: 25 Ministries.

"Matthew: We get all of our handicap vehicles, medical supplies, paint, and other stuff from 25 ministries. Brendamour said that New Life Furniture Bank, a wonderful institution in Blue Ash, will be taking household pieces and St. Vincent de Paul.

They're collaborating with All But The House on Thursday for Earth Day to sell a consignment of things that might still be important.

From 4 to 8 p.m., the occurrence will take place in Blue Ash.

"They will market stuff for you if you have things you want to get rid of that have future value. As a result, consignment through All But The House will be a part of the event," Brendamour said.

So, whether you make money off of the recycled items or have a discounted lunch, the main aim is to keep things out of landfills and into the hands of those who use them.

If you plan on attending the event at Third Eye Brewing Company, they will plant a tree in your honor for each drink you buy to commemorate Earth Day.

Every year on April 22nd, Earth Day is celebrated to raise awareness of waste and honor the blue planet's climate. The first Earth Day, created by Senator Gaylord Nelson, was held in 1970 to encourage biodiversity and raise awareness of the growing problems of air, water, and soil contamination. It was dubbed "International Mother Earth Day" by the United Nations.

Restore Our Earth 

Earth Day will be celebrated for the 51st time this year. This year's theme for Earth Day is "Restore Our Earth." According to earthday.org, the theme "examines natural processes, new green technology, and creative thinking that help preserve the world's habitats." The experts refute the notion that prevention and adaptation are the only two options for dealing with climate change by recommending strategies to rebuild and replenish the planet. A healthier Earth would allow us to live a more fulfilling life. It's not just an option or a desire; it's a need.

Since 1970, April 22nd has been designated as Earth Day. Every year, the day is observed to raise awareness of environmental problems such as habitat depletion and pollution.
