            Naperville observes Earth Day with week-long celebration

            By: Madeline Klepec | | Published On: 2019-04-17

            April 22 has commonly been known as Earth Day since 1970. It’s a time to be kind to the Earth and help it out where you can. Naperville, however, doesn’t only celebrate the Earth on just one day, but rather, dedicates a whole week to it. Sponsored by the Naperville Park District, along with a couple other sponsors, Naperville celebrates Earth Day by giving it a whole week: April 22-28.

            It wasn’t until 1990 that Earth Day was recognized worldwide, according to . Since then, Naperville has fully embraced the national holiday and created a week-long celebration for it.

            While there are events celebrating the Earth throughout the week in Naperville, April 27 will be the . Volunteer Manager of Naperville Park District, Lynnette Hoole, says the fair is a “collaborative effort with many local organizations.” Some notable sponsors include the City of Naperville, North Central College, DuPage County Forest Preserve, Naperville Convention and Visitors Bureau and many more. At the fair, guests will be able to visit vendors and engage in Earth Day-related activities. The Naperville CVB will also have a table in which there will be rocks to decorate. The Fair will take place at the Fort Hill Activity Center from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m., free of admission. It’ll be a day of Earth-related fun!

            As a community, Hoole believes that it’s important for the residents of Naperville to be involved during Earth Week. “This is to bring a spotlight to our community — to keep it in its best shape for the future residents,” Hoole states. She also believes that it’ll “help teach our community about the better way to do things — to showcase businesses in our community that are doing it in a sustainable way.”

            2019 will be marked as the third year in which Naperville Park District has hosted Earth Week. Hoole enjoys seeing the excitement in others as they work to “move (the) community to a more sustainable existence.” For her, that is the most rewarding part of their initiative for Earth Week Naperville.

            Bettering our planet doesn’t have to wait until April 22 or during Naperville’s Earth Week celebration. There are multiple projects within the community a person can do on their own all year long. Hoole says that no matter the time or physical abilities someone possesses, there are small things each person can do to continually help our Earth.

            The first thing Hoole suggests is to pick up litter three to five times a week at a parking lot on the way into a store, for example. “It does not need to be a big production,” she says. Not only would it help make the community cleaner, she states that “it is a great way to reuse those terrible plastic bags.”

            Switching from plastic straws can also be quite beneficial and something you can do every day to preserve our Earth. There are reusable straws for less than $3 people can purchase that Hoole strongly recommends. She uses a stainless-steel straw instead of using plastic straws.

            Finally, Hoole proposes the idea of using reusable bags instead of the plastic bags from grocery stores. While she says this isn’t a new idea, it’s an easier (and smarter) alternative for the planet. “I carry a small bag that zips into itself in my purse in case I forget to get one out of my car,” she says.

            It doesn’t have to be Earth Day to make a difference to our Earth. There are small things you can do every day to make your community a better place to live. Including the aforementioned ways in which you can help preserve the planet, Hoole also picks up litter every day when she walks her dog. She also recycles everything she can and encourages everyone to do the same.

            Make a difference in Naperville and help make the Earth a better and cleaner place for generations to come. Start by participating in Naperville’s Earth Week from April 22 to 28. For any questions or more information, contact Lynnette Hoole.
