Earth Day Coalition

Earth Day Coalition (EDC) is a nonprofit environmental education and leadership organization serving Northeast Ohio and the nation. EDC was established in 1990 to commemorate the twentieth anniversary of Earth Day in Ohio. EDC has four core programs.

Earth Day

EarthFest is organized every April to celebrate Earth Day in Ohio. Over 175 exhibitors, 10,000-50,000 attendees and 800 volunteers participate in making EarthFest Ohio’s largest environmental education event and the longest running Earth Day celebration in the nation.

Clean Transportation

We are accelerating the deployment of clean fuels and vehicles since receiving the U. S. Department of Energy’s “Clean Cities” designation for Northeast Ohio in 1999. We also promote clean technologies and practices such as idle reduction, mass transit, car sharing, bicycle infrastructure and other initiatives to improve air quality and quality of life, while reducing petroleum consumption and the causes of Climate Change.
