Earth Day in the Tri-CitiesPosted: Updated:
KENNEWICK, Wash;-- Every year groups in our community host a multitude of earth day activities to raise awareness for conservation as well as remind us of the simple things we can do every day to help reduce our footprint.
For example, Mail by the Mall off Gage Blvd. in Kennewick offers recycling services every day for things like bubblewrap, packing peanuts and cell phones. And their central location makes recycling convenient.
Mail by the mall isn't the only company in our area that offer specific recycling services, Cartridge World takes your empty ink cartridges and either refills them or recycles them.
Now these are everyday services that are offered in our community, but today in particular, there will be opportunities for anyone to lend a hand.
You can recycle cell phones all month at our local libraries. There will be a guided wildlands walk this morning at the Amon Creek Preserve starting at 9. You can make Earth Day crafts this afternoon at the Pasco Library starting at 3:30.
Here's a list of other events going on today:
April 22 — Workshop on the best trees for the Tri-Cities from 6-8 p.m. at the Richland Community Center. To reserve a seat, call 942-7429.
April 22 — Garbage! The Revolution Starts at Home, a movie and discussion beginning at 6:30 p.m. at the Richland Library, 955 Northgate Drive.
