Ways to Make A Difference

While we are practicing safe social distancing, there are many other simple ways we can celebrate Earth Day to make a positive difference in our community:

Visit the City's web page on What You Can Do to Fight Climate Change for some year-round tips on reducing your energy consumption and making earth-friendly choices. 

Visit the Official Earth Day website and learn about their Digital 24-Hours of Action program for 2020

  • Prevent accidental litter. Close dumpster lids when not in use; don’t throw unbagged trash in truck beds; bag all trash placed in curbside pickup cans.
  • Go to the Great Razorback Regional Greenway Cleanup Facebook Page for other simple things you and your household can do. 

Get more information about the City of Fayetteville’s sustainability program.

If you have any questions or would like more ideas on how to get involved please contact Heather Ellzey 479-601-1930.

Have a safe and fun Earth Day!
