Monday will be a big day around Capitol Hill to celebrate sustainability with parties for the new kid on the block — and an elder statesman of the green movement.

We’ve told you *lots* about the Earth Day 2013 celebration to officially open 15th and Madison’s Bullitt Center.

On the other end of 15th Ave, you can also celebrate one of Capitol Hill’s longest living institutions of environmental responsibility as Environmental Works celebrates its 43rd birthday with a parklet party:

The Bullitt Center, billed as the greenest commercial building in the world, celebrates its grand opening Monday.

PLEASE JOIN environmental WORKS staff, board members, supporters, and friends in celebrating the 43rd anniversary of the founding of environmental WORKS Community Design Center – on the first Earth Day in 1970.

Help celebrate our birthday at our second annual parklet at the firehouse doors – made possible with help from our friends at John Barker Landscape Architects, Swansons Nursery, QFC, and Green Plate Special. Parfait Ice Cream & BUNS Gourmet Natural Burger trucks will be joining us; come buy a treat and enjoy it in our outdoor living room!

You can learn more about the community design center in this CHS post documenting the group on its 40th anniversary a few years back. Check out eworks.org for the latest goings-on. For more Earth Day activities, check out the CHS Calendar.
