43rd Ward Green Week! It's Here!
Celebrate Green City Week!
Alderman Michele Smith recently announced that June 23rd-30th is the 43rd Ward's first ever Green Week! The theme? "Greening Your Home and Your Ride." Every night of Green Week highlights a different way that you can make your home more environmentally friendly and reduce your carbon footprint.
- The Shredding and Recycling Drive lets you clean out your home without filling the landfill;
- The Green Homes Tour shows you the steps some of your neighbors have taken to make their homes more sustainable;
- The Workshop Fair teaches you how to reduce your carbon footprint with easy energy saving, green cleaning and home improvement ideas (includes family-friendly sessions!);
- The Green Car Show introduces you to electric car options;
- Green Week ends with a Family Bicycle Ride. Follow the ride with a visit to the Peggy Notebaert Nature Museum where you can enjoy 43rd Ward Discount Day and check out their exhibit "Bikes!"
Each of the events will feature fun, snacks and giveaways!
