Recycle Utah, a Park City-based nonprofit that is on a mission to empower people to lead sustainable lives, will hold their annual Earth Day celebration from 5-8 p.m. on Sunday, April 22, at the Wasatch Brew Pub, 250 Main St.

Tickets are available for $35 each online at http://www.recycleutah.org, or $40 at the door. Each ticket includes dinner, two drink tickets and live music. Children's tickets are available for $15 each.

All proceeds from the fundraiser will benefit Recycle Utah's environmental education programs.

The evening will also include live music from Clark Urie, a silent auction, and a recycled art activity for kids. The silent auction will feature a variety of items from local businesses.

Recycle Utah educates over 5,000 students in Summit and Wasatch County each year. Students learn about a variety of topics related to environmental sustainability including basic recycling, natural resources, water conservation, hazardous and electronic waste, alternative energy, climate change, and energy conservation.
