And it's all for a good cause, too: Earth Day. We heard about this yesterday and figured we'd pass it along to you. Today, the Burt's Bees people are taking over Venice Beach, with Burt look-alike handing out fake beards and hats, smoothies made in a blender powered by a bicycle, samples, and lots of love for Mother Earth. The party is all day, but the smoothies are only being served from 11am to 3pm. [Racked Inbox]
