Earth Day Events in NW Ohio

earthdayEarth Day is officially on Monday, April 22nd this year, but you can celebrate all month long!  PCS is excited to be attending several outreach events this month where we can share what we do and why we do it.  April is the perfect month to do something positive for the planet.  There are many ways to engage with local environmental programs and enjoy eco-friendly festivities! Our partners are putting on wonderful programs throughout Northwest Ohio and here are just a few:

  • EcoFest Toledo: the first ever EcoFest Toledo, organized by Lucas County Sustainability Commission, will feature free family fun with shopping, recycling activities, workshops, live music, local food, green booths, kids activities, and demonstrations! PCS will be there with a booth where you can build your own personal fishing line recycling bins.
