Como Earth Month

New in 2011, Como is featuring Earth Day activities for an entire 30 days from April 15 though May 14, 2011.  Watch for your April and May Comotion newsletters in your mailbox and check back here for all of the eco activities highlighted in and around Como.

Earth Day is good, Earth Week is better, but Earth Month...well that's simply the best.  We are busy working on putting together our 30 ideas creating events, workshops , and incentives for Como Earth Month. 
 
We'll have fun ones like "Mending Monday" where you fix something you would otherwise throw out, like a pair of jeans, etc... we'll provide some sewing kits and patches to those who come first. Cheap ones, like "Frugal Friday" where the goal is to spend nothing. We'll have practical ones like "Tire Pressure tuesday" where you inflate your bike tire or car tires for best mileage and efficiency.  There will be stargazing, movies to watch, neighborhood clean-ups and wildlife inventories to participate in.  For the more hard-core we'll have challenges like "kNOw Waste Wednesday" where we'll give you a small bag and you'll have to fit all the waste you generate that day into it (compost & recycling not included).  Yes, there's something for everyone and it all leads up to the Spring MIMO neighborhood Free Store! (see MIMO on our website for more info).  A calendar is presented below with a general description, for more details see the full description of the various earth month activities or click on the subpage located below.  The calendar handout can also be downloaded below.
