Quakes to celebrate Earth Day on Saturday

By Olivia Curran

Happy Earth Day, Quakes fans! 

In the spirit of Unity and keeping it clean, we will officially be celebrating Earth Day on Saturday at Buck Shaw when we face Chivas USA. 

With the help of match-presenting sponsor County of Santa Clara Household Hazardous Waste Program, the Earthquakes will have many green activations for fans to enjoy at the game. Our Epicenter will be full of "green" vendors, including the San Jose Conservation Corp who will be supplying bins for recycling, landfill and compost throughout the stadium, Santa Clara Hazardous Waste Program and Edible Silicon Valley. We'll even have face-painters who will be painting good ole' Mother Earth on whoever wants it. 

Our official coin toss will be done by the Green Hero, brought to us by the City of San Jose Environmental Services, and Earth Day Facts and Tips will appear on the videoboard for all fans to enjoy throughout the match. 

And - rumor has it - our mascot Q will have an Earth Day themed hairdo for the celebration as well. Could green hair be making a comeback? 

You'll have to be there to find out. See you on Saturday!
