Tacoma Earth Month Weekly Themes

We'll kick-off Earth Month 2021 on April 5 with a week of conservations on sustainable food, growing your own food, and keeping soil healthy for a healthy planet. Week two, starting April 11, will be all about waste prevention and how to keep trash out of the landfill and Puget Sound. Week three, starting April 18, will be Sustainable Fashion week where we'll learn about local designers and what you can do to reduce fashion waste as well as social and environmental impacts of the fast fashion industry. The last week of Earth Month, starting April 25, will be about sustainable communities - things we can all contribute to for a better Tacoma.
