Earth Day in Ottawa

Earth Day 2020

Earth Day isn’t just a private event you focus on in your own home. Thanks to the events held by Ecology Ottawa, you can celebrate Earth Day in Ottawa publicly with other people who are environmentally conscious. Participating is a great way to deepen your knowledge of the environment, focus on making better choices, and even focus on the wins the environmental movement has achieved in our town. Every year, including 2020, you can look forward to Earth Day events in Ottawa, here are a few that you can look forward to this year. 

Earth Day Party  

Looking for something a little more upbeat? How about drinks, mosaic, and even door prizes? Ecology Ottawa holds an Earth Day party with just that. It’s also an annual fundraiser for the group, so you can be confident that you’re partying for a good cause. Ecology Ottawa holds several events throughout the year that focus on promoting a greener Ottawa. 

Great Glebe Green Garage Sale 

Need to focus on environmental fundamentals: recycle, re-use, reduce? This green garage sale is a great way to sell items you no longer use and to pick up items instead of buying new. If you don’t have anything to sell and aren’t much of a bargain hunter, you could consider volunteering for the event. 

Plus, during the garage sale, Ecology Ottawa gives away tree seedlings! If you need a new addition to your property, or you like to guerilla garden, this is a great way to get seedlings and support the environment. Did you know that Ottawa’s urban tree canopy is under threat? You don’t have to buy a tree to help out. 

Annual Clean-Ups 

Many organizations throughout Ottawa hold an annual clean-up of their green spaces on Earth Day. Most will provide safety gloves, bags, and even a special treat as a reward to the volunteers who show up. As this year’s Earth Day approaches, check in with your favourite places and see if they need help keeping their local environment clean.
