The month of April is known for Earth Day. This year, ORK challenges everyone to make a pledge for the month of April and complete a service project that benefits the environment.
Stick with one type of service or do several things. Get creative! Here are some suggestions:
- Litter cleanups on public land or in your neighborhood
- Plant a pollinator garden at home, school, or work
- Start a Sustainability Club at school or work
- Only shop with reusable bags
- Save water in your home to water your plants and keep track of how much water is saved with a pitcher or 2L bottle)
- Only shop at thrift stores or consignment stores for clothing and household items
Bonus: If you are located within the Ogeechee River watershed, ORK can provide volunteer credit for service. Provide the following: location of service, photos of service, and total volunteer hours for April in order to receive credit. Send it to firstname.lastname@example.org.
