Happy Earth Day! April News from Clark County Green Neighbors

April 2024 ‍

Hello , 


Earth Day is almost here! The theme for this year's Earth Day is "Planet vs. Plastics." We encourage you to celebrate that message by embracing reuse and reducing the amount of single-use plastics going to landfill.  


There are several events scheduled to take place in our community over the next week to help us celebrate the planet and remind us to be good stewards of the resources we use. Read on to learn more about community Earth Day events and catch up on the lastest Green Neighbors updates.


Best wishes,


Green Neighbors
