General News Earth Month Tips by Jacob Gifford April 1, 2022 Earth Day is April 22nd this year! The Solid Waste Authority of Central Ohio (SWACO) has come up with some great tips and tricks for all of us to consider using. These are great tips for the whole year, not just this month! Use plastic-free laundry detergent pods that disintegrate in water and come in a 100% recyclable box. Ditch single-use water bottles for good. Commit to reusable water bottles instead. Opt out of junk mail and opt in for paperless statements from banks, utility companies, etc. Instead of buying new clothes, check out an online auction for something vintage. Or shop around second-hand clothing stores.
