Earth Day: A Calendar of Events
Earth Day is a few weeks away, but we're already thinking green.
The City of Evanston just participated in Earth Hour, and here at Patch we're keeping the momentum going through the next month to help the city stay "green" through Earth Day.
We'll be bringing you a feature every week through April sharing tips and tricks on how to be sustainable at home.
