Belleville celebrating Earth Day

During the council meeting held virtually on Monday, April 20, Mayor Mitch Panciuk announced April 22 as Earth Day in the City of Belleville. While current physical distancing recommendations and gathering restrictions remain in place, the City is making efforts to ensure this important day is recognized.

In honour of the 50th anniversary of Earth Day, the City’s Parks and Open Spaces department will be planting 50 trees.

The Green Task Force would like to remind residents that there are many ways you can celebrate Earth Day at home on April 22 including:

  • Organizing a garbage pick-up with your household. Litter is especially visible this time of year and collecting garbage along trails and sidewalks when out for a walk is a great way to make a difference while keeping active. However, we ask you to follow these precautions: wear gloves, use a garbage picker if you have one, practice physical distancing of at least two metres apart from others and wash your hands with soap and water as soon as you get home. A reminder that parks remain closed and trails are open for walk-through access only. Please obey posted signage and remember to keep things moving while out and about.
  • Starting your own veggie seedlings or building a garden bed. The Belleville Public Library has put together an amazing resource on their website highlighting gardening eBooks, courses and more: https://bellevillelibrary.ca/services-s2187.php
  • Committing to reducing your food waste. Check out these 12 food waste reduction tips. An added bonus? Reducing food waste means fewer trips to the grocery store!
  • Listening to an eco-minded podcast. Zero Waste Countdown is packed with useful tips and engaging content from experts all around the globe. Bonus: it’s hosted and produced right next door in Tyendinaga Township by Laura Nash.

Visit Earth Day Canada’s #EarthDayatHome page for more ways to celebrate at home.

The City will also be sharing tips and tricks each day of Earth Week in the City of Belleville (April 22 to 29) on ways you can take simple, yet positive action for the environment as part of your daily life. Stay tuned to our Facebook page for tips or follow Earth Day Canada for more.
