Happy Earth Day – Win A Handmade Quilt!

UPDATE: Congrats to our winner, Meghan T. (@mtrimmy ), who submitted this beautiful video!

Happy Earth Day everyone! If I could have my way, every day would be Earth Day… but today we are celebrating with a very special activity. We are planting a BLDG 25 Blog tree! We wanted to do something to give back to our beautiful planet and campus here at the Navy Yard and we loved the idea of planting a tree that we can nurture and take care of throughout our time here.

We chose a spot down by the river where there used to be a tree that is now just a rotting stump, and we will be planting a dogwood tree today! Stay tuned for photos of the planting, and we’ll continue to monitor its progress as it grows and flourishes :). In addition to our tree, we are giving away this incredible patchwork quilt that was handmade by one of our display team members! We are excited to find a home for it, where it can be used as a wall hanging, rug, or throw on a bed or sofa.

To enter:

1. Tweet or Instagram a photo of what you’re doing to celebrate Earth Day! Use the hashtag #FPEarthDay.

2. Come back to this post and comment, leaving your Twitter or Instagram handle so we can check out your photo.

We will select a winner at random this Friday, April 26th. I can’t wait to see what you’re all doing to celebrate this special day!

Thats for the chance. Happy Earth Day!!

Remembering the Survivor Tree that I visited last Tuesday in NYC at One World Trade Center 9/11 Memorial. Even though that infamous day was full of tragedy, the earth preserved one tree as a symbol of our American spirit! @ornurse85 #FPEarthDay

I went backpacking around Yosemite in honor of Earth Day(: The mountains have taught me more than school ever could! Happy birthday to the one and only Mother Earth, I don’t know who I would be without her.
