Santa Barbara Earth Day Festival

In 1969, the devastating images of a massive oil spill from an oil platform off Santa Barbara's coast galvanized California into action and caught the attention of the rest of the nation, including Senator Gaylord Nelson, founder of Earth Day, who visited Santa Barbara shortly after the spill. The resulting swell of outrage and concern gave rise to the first Earth Day in 1970, as well as to the creation of the Community Environmental Council – one of the most established environmental organizations in the region, and the host of Santa Barbara's annual Earth Day Festival.
 
Today, the Community Environmental Council is pioneering real life solutions in areas with the biggest impact on climate change – most notably energy, transportation and food systems. CEC's five initiatives – Go Solar, Eat Local, Drive Less, Ditch Plastic and Choose Electric – offer accessible pathways for the community to connect with and take action on CEC's vision for a cleaner, healthier future.
