April is Earth Month, and Sustainable Walla Walla invites you to check out our website (sustainableww.org) for information on how you can become more eco-friendly.
There are tips for decreasing your energy usage in your home, and information on local community gardens and Walla Walla Gleaners, to increase local food security. Transportation options, including links to carpooling opportunities, are also listed.
Additionally, you’ll find information and links on sustainability efforts of local colleges, the City of Walla Walla, Sustainable Living Center and local businesses. Networking with these organizations provides opportunities to share each other’s creative ideas to promote conservation.
Want to organize curbside recycling for your church, business or multifamily residential complex? You can find that information on our website, as well.
And, for fun, check out the musical talents of City Council member Barbara Clark singing her original songs, “Can’t Throw It Away” (accompanied by a former group of local musicians, The Usual Suspects) and “Did You Bring Your Own Bag?” Barbara also performs the music that accompanies the slideshow on the transportation page.
Earth Day is today and Sustainable Walla Walla is again sponsoring a Citywide Green Commute Challenge. Businesses, churches, schools and organizations are invited to compete for awards and a traveling trophy. Free bus passes are available for individual participants this week.
Happy Earth Month from Sustainable Walla Walla!
