Event Report

Juneau's Drive Electric Earth Day combined a teaming effort with the Juneau Electric Vehicle Association, Juneau Commission on Sustainability, Downtown Business Association, and Litter Free Juneau.  EV drivers gathered in the downtown historic district of Juneau Alaska for an EV photo opportunity.  Arrangments were made to only have EV's parked in this area of downtown for the photo opportunity. EV owners were encouraged to park and then assist the downtown community pick up litter in conjunction with Earth Day and Litter Free Juneau, an annual Juneau clean-up event originally started in 1916.

Alaska State Representative, Andi Story, and her family participated along with board members of the event groups.  Downtown Business Association and Juneau Electric Vehicle Association members sponsored a free coffee, latte, mocha or hot chocolate to any participant who assisted in the event. Several tons of trash were collected from public walkways and parks in the downtown Juneau area.  The Drive Electric Earth Day event was covered by the local Juneau radio station, KINY.

Event Description

 

All attendees and volunteers are required to follow local health guidelines. It is recommended that everyone wear face masks whenever they are within six feet of another person at all Drive Electric Earth Day 2022 events. Please see this information about how to improve how your mask protects you. For more information, see our in-person event safety requirements.

An Earth Day Celebration and Collaboration with the Juneau Electric Vehicle Association (JEVA), the Juneau Downtown Business Association (DBA), and Litter Free Juneau.

We will gather JUNEAU EV'S downtown for a 2022 Juneau EV photo. We will try to fill parking in front and up and downtown S. Franklin street in front of the Senate Building-  Alaska Hotel area first and spread the parking from there.

 9AM on Saturday April 30th, 2022. 

We look forward to packing the downtown with Juneau's Electric Vehicles for a historical Drive Electric Earth Day event and then help the town with volunteers who want to stay and help pick up litter.

This is an excellent opportunity to show off your Electric Vehicle with downtown merchants and to help attract other Juneau volunteers working collaboratively together to make Juneau a better, more sustainable and cleaner place.

JEVA, DBA members and volunteers will help pick up litter in downtown Juneau. Trash bags will be provided by Litter Free Juneau.
