Mid-Columbia Earth Month

Category: Uncategorised Published: Friday, 17 November 2017 Written by Super User

National Earth Day is April 22nd, but in the Tri-Cities, Washington we celebrate it for an entire month with educational activities, tours, talks, crafts, projects, and special events!

In addition to events and activities, Earth Month is a great time to try out some new personal habits that are beneficial to the environment.  Commit to 30 days of a positive change, and see what happens!  What will you do this Earth Month? Here are some ideas to get you started:

 Recycle. Check out the Community Guide for information on how and where to recycle in the Tri-Cities.

Attend an Earth Month activity.  Find events and activities throughout the month of April (and the entire year!) on the Go Green Tricities Calendar.

Reduce the amount of garbage you put out this month. Can you get by for four weeks on one week''s worth of garbage? Take the One Can A Month Challenge!

Organize or participate in a community clean-up or neighborhood beautification project.  You can find an existing project on the calendar, contact your city to find projects, or organize your own!

Reuse.  Repair, repurpose, trade, and/or buy with reuse in mind. BYOB (bring your own bag) when you shop, donate used clothing to thrift stores, buy used whenever possible.

Participate in Earth Hour.  Earth Hour is a unique opportunity for you to become more sustainable and do something positive for the environment.  Join the world’s largest grassroots environmental movement by switching off your lights for 1 hour on March 25th. Check out the GGTC calendar for local Earth Hour events.

Kids Activities:  Check out our Kids Contest for a chance to show how you''re green and win prizes!
