Magical! Whimsical! Green!


TPSS Co-op invites you to a community celebration in honor of Mama Earth! Join us as we transform the Takoma Junction parking lot into a frolicking green realm of festivities, rekindling our connection to this amazing and wondrous planet we call home.

In the spirit of 36 years of the TPSS Co-op mission, we will come together, strong in our roots of environmental activism and our commitment to bio-diversity with a collective of local artisans, farmers, food vendors, green & organic businesses, community leaders, non-profit organizations, whimsical musicians, performers and a fairy glen for enchanted folks of all ages to celebrate Earth Day.

Earth Day 2017

Earth Day, a Global Tradition


In 1970 Senator Gaylord Nelson saw Earth Day as a way to transform the national consciousness to make positive changes for the environment. By the end of that year, because of the many efforts spawned by the Earth Day initiative, the EPA became a reality, a viable federal system of reform for our precious planet. For 47 years, we have celebrated this victory and continue to find sustainable solutions that have taught us that this path towards our biological connection with the earth is not just a political fight but essential to our very existence. Now in 2017, we face great challenges that would stand to reverse our momentum. Earth Day is a time to celebrate our connection to Gaia, and reignite our connection to that which sustains us. So on Earth Day 2017, we celebrate the long-standing tradition of this amazing planet and pledge our guardianship to doing all we can to remember we are a part of this bio-diverse wonder and we have the power as a community to uphold the belief that we are grateful for all the earth provides

TPSS Co-op, 36 Years Committed to Earth Day Initiatives


TPSS Co-op’s mission to promote healthful living has always been naturally aligned with Earth Day initiatives, we work with local farmers who grow food that supports bio-diversity and sustainability and offer wholesome foods with a range of fair trade, organic and non-GMO options. At TPSS Co-op we honor a tradition of “good for the environment” practices like food waste recovery, recycling, composting and our Poker Chips program that encourages shoppers to re-use bags. TPSS Co-op has been a host of Earth Day events for almost 20 years in Takoma Park. The co-op has always been a meeting place and hub for the community and Members to network and feel connected to healthy living and healing the planet. Every day is Earth Day at TPSS Co-op.
