Cuyahoga Soil and Water Conservation District will be conducting a "Green Cleaning: Inside and Out" workshop in the Euclid Creek Watershed this fall.
The workshop will be held November 28 at the Highland Heights Community Center and will run from 6:30 to 8:00 PM. The $10 fee includes cleaning solution recipes and sample cleaners to take home.
The workshop is intended for anyone interested in reducing the use of toxins and other harsh chemicals at home and in the yard. Household cleaners and lawn chemicals are potential sources of water pollution, making their way into local streams and rivers, and eventually Lake Erie. By using more natural homemade cleaners, residents can reduce their environmental impact, save money, and reduce their exposure to harmful chemicals.
For more information or to register, contact Claire Posius at 216-524-6580 x16 or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org. Pre-registration is required by November 21.
The workshop is sponsored by the City of Highland Heights, Friends of Euclid Creek, and the Cuyahoga Soil & Water Conservation District.The Cuyahoga Soil & Water Conservation District's mission is to promote conservation of land and aquatic resources in a developed environment through stewardship, education, and technical assistance. www.cuyahogaswcd.org
