GREEN BAY (WLUK) -- While we remain "Safer At Home" here in Wisconsin, there still are plenty of creative ways to participate in today's celebration of Earth Day. We reached out to Brown County's UW-Extension program from some local tips here in Northeast Wisconsin:

  • Set aside items to donate like used clothing and toys
  • Replace old light bulbs with LED bulbs
  • Gather up old newspapers, magazines and papers to recycle
  • Change your printer settings to make double sided prints
  • Limit consumption of paper by paying bills on-line
  • Make plans to plant a garden
  • Conduct nature scavenger hunt in your yard
  • Create a household compost system

In addition, UW-Extension Brown County Horticulture is offering a free, virtual beginning gardening series called "Romaine Calm and Garden On" that is running on Tuesday and Thursday from 10-11 a.m. starting on April 28, through May 28. For more information on this free gardening option, click here.

Greater Green Bay Habitat For Humanity ReStore still wants your donated items, too -- just not right now. As you do your spring cleaning, remember to set aside items like gently-used tools or materials to donate, once they return to normal business operations. For a full list of accepted items, click here.
