Earth Day goes digitalApril 20, 2020
From Local Sources
While many communities and organizations were planning big festivities for the 50th anniversary of Earth Day on Wednesday, those plans have gone digital nationwide as well as in the Hoosier state.
Dubois County Solid Waste Management District Director Carla Striegel-Winner invites Dubois County residents to join in the social media campaign put together by the Association of Indiana Solid Waste Management Districts educators across the state.
The group invites Hoosiers to celebrate Earth Day all week by choosing one or more challenges put together by the group. Folks can take a photo of themselves doing the challenges and be eligible for prizes at the end of the week.
In addition to the challenges, the Facebook page and Instagram feeds created will be posting lots of great stuff for adults and kids all week, including: DIY videos - ardening, vermicomposting, T-shirt bags; papermaking; storytime; virtual tours; spotlights on Indiana businesses; tip of the day; inspirational quotes; and Facebook Live events.
Dubois County residents may go to the Dubois County Solid Waste District Facebook page to find info, or visit @aismwdeducators on Facebook. Instagram.com/aiswmd_educators will go to the Instagram feed.
Striegel-Winner encourages residents to take advantage of these resources, but also reminds residents to take a break outside and enjoy the earth, device free.
