Happy Earth Week, Menlo Park!

Posted on April 19, 2021 at 6:24 pm by Clay Curtin

Each April, we celebrate Earth Day in recognition of the community action we can take and to educate others on how we can restore the earth around us. This year during Earth Week, we ask you to take part and do something in your community. 

How you can be involved during Earth Week
  • Clean up litter in your neighborhood with your household or social bubble.
  • Refill your water bottles at one of the City’s new hydration stations
  • Show off your home composting bin or home garden
  • Ride a bike, take a walk around the neighborhood or go for a hike
  • Skip the plastic bags at the grocery stores and use reusable bags
  • Charge your electric vehicle either at home or at a public charging station
Post your pictures and tag us on social media @CityofMenloPark and check out the upcoming virtual class on composting.
