The Third Annual Carteret Earth Day Celebration

(CARTERET, NJ) -- The Third Annual Carteret Earth Day Celebration will take place on Saturday, April 20, 2024 in Carteret Park on Carteret Avenue at Cypress Street. This year the popular event includes a wellness expo featuring a dozen vendors. They either will be selling holistic, organic products or providing wellness services, including physical therapy, chiropractic care, health screenings, yoga, and exercise classes. The event runs from 11:00am to 2:00pm.

“The best way to take care of the planet is to take care of ourselves,” Mayor Daniel J. Reiman said. “For that reason, the Annual Carteret Earth Day Celebration now includes a wellness expo that will offer a variety of vendors who have Carteret residents’ best interests in mind.”

Wellness Expo participants will include: 

Amway, manufacturer and distributor of nutrition, beauty, personal care and home products

Garden State Therapy, multi-disciplined practice based in downtown Carteret that will offer physical and occupational therapy

Children also will enjoy bouncy houses, a community art project led by Central Jersey Arts Council, and the live interactive band Bash the Trash, who play environmental-minded songs on instruments made of recycled materials. Event highlights also will include food trucks, DJ music, and municipal, community, charity and county information booths, including a presentation by Savnoor Kaur, a Carteret High School junior recently chosen to participate in Monaco’s Junk Kouture sustainable fashion contest with a recyclable gown of her own design.

“We are extremely proud of Savnoor and her amazing accomplishment representing Carteret at such a prestigious event,” Mayor Daniel J. Reiman said. “We look forward to her presenting her work at the Carteret Earth Day Celebration.”

Being only one of 10 U.S. high school students chosen to compete in Junk Kouture was an unbelievable honor, Kaur said. It marked the first time she ever modeled, and to do so on the fashionable French Riviera was daunting, she said.

Junk Kouture challenges ages 13 to 19 worldwide to create an original couture made entirely from recyclable waste. “Lost Beauty” was chosen from more than 1,600 entries from students in 20 nations on six continents.

“‘Lost Beauty’ is an homage to my culture’s traditional Indian lehenga,” Kaur said. “But instead of the floor-length skirts, decorative blouses and shawl-like scarfs called dupatta that usually make up lehenga, I used old plastic bottles, bags, table covers, twigs, dried leaves, recycled cardboard and paper, including pieces of old homework and textbooks, and pieces of old clothing and shoes. It took three months to complete, so it was challenging but also fun to design and complete.”

Volunteers are needed throughout the celebration for the annual spring cleanup of Carteret Park, as well as the Borough’s Adopt a Park program, which coordinates a town-wide fall park cleanup. Cleanup volunteers will gather at 10:00am in Carteret Park, an hour before the event opens to the public.
