Redhook Brewery of Portsmouth and the Green Alliance, which is headquartered in Portsmouth, are celebrating Earth Day on Wednesday, April 22, with a drop-in clean-up and a party, featuring special guest Ben Cohen, co-founder of Ben & Jerry’s Ice Cream and StampStampede.org. The event is open to the public and guests can enjoy live music and complimentary food. Not only that but $2 from every beer purchased goes to the local environmental nonprofit Hodgson Brook Association plus there will be free ice cream from Ben & Jerry’s.

The event will bring together sustainable business leaders, green-minded residents and Ben & Jerry’s fans. The Party for the Planet is 6-9 p.m. at Redhook Brewery in Portsmouth with a $5 entry fee also going to Hodgson Brook. All are invited but Green Alliance members get in free and clean-up participants get free raffle tickets for every bag of trash collected.

Green Alliance Director Sarah Brown says, “A business like Redhook is ahead of the curve when it comes to sustainability and is thrilled to be hosting green business leaders, citizens and Ben Cohen. We want folks to connect the dots between responsible business practices and protecting the environment; all three of our organizations share these values.”
