[ARCHIVED] 10 Ideas to Celebrate Earth Day

Earth Day

Loveland’s Tree and Environment Committee offers 10 way to celebrate Earth Day, April 22. 

  1. Buy a reusable water bottle. Refuse to use disposable water bottles.
  2. Pledge to reduce single-use plastics! Globally, approximately 150 million tons of single-use plastic are used each year!  
  3. Help out with Loveland’s Annual Litter Pick-Up on Saturday, April 24 from 9 a.m.-12 p.m. Meet at Nisbet Park in Downtown Loveland. All ages are welcome. Clean-up bags will be provided. Please wear old shoes, a facemask, and gloves. 
  4. Plant an Ohio native plant at your house. Native plants support the greatest diversity of wildlife — songbirds, butterflies and bees!
  5. Buy a reusable coffee cup. Take it with you as you fill your cup of Joe.
  6. Download the iNaturalist mobile app and help our project! The Tree and Environment Committee is creating a tree inventory of Loveland. This will help the city in many ways, and it's a fun activity for the family. You can also upload pictures of fish, mollusks, amphibians, spiders, birds, fungi, insects, mammals, plants, and reptiles you see in Loveland. No observation is insignificant. If you find a teensy-weensy insect, flower or mushroom, snap some pics and add to iNaturalist. The committee will use this information to help plan future projects.
  7. Go meatless today! Choose not to eat beef on Earth Day. And, moving forward, choose to reduce the amount of beef you eat, helping the world as you do.
  8. Install a wildlife nesting structure. Search online for a variety of nest boxes to support natural wildlife such as bees, songbirds, bats, owls, and more.
  9. Educate yourself on climate change. Here is a great place to start.
  10. Join an environmental group! Apply for a committee seat this winter, join Loveland's Love Our Land group, volunteer at the Little Miami Conservancy...there are plenty of ways to help!
