Ever consider what it takes to generate enough power to light a light bulb or operate household appliances? Take The PIE&G energy bike for a spin, at the 2019 free Earth Week Plus Expo, to see how much power you can create and learn about ways you can save at home with lighting, appliances, heating and cooling systems and more.  PIE&G is also bringing an induction cooktop and an indoor unit for a heat pump. Your electric utility’s Energy Optimization (EO) program offers cash incentives and services to help you save energy and money at home, at work or on your farm.

Free Family Friendly Earth Day Events
Earth Week Plus Expo and Adventures

Each year in April each year the Earth Week Plus non-profit organization (EWP) holds a free expo for all ages and a great line up of free adventures to help increase education and awareness about environmental issues. EWP celebrates the Earth and its creatures, with assemblies, interactive displays, workshops and exhibits for all ages. The ‘PLUS’ is that the adventures are presented all month in April and May at various adventure locations around Cheboygan County and the Great Up North!

This year we were interviewed by Big Country Hits Radio 102.9 and would like to share the interview with all of you. Our EWP Chairman, Judi Chimner talks about the 2 live animal presentations that will be at the expo, all the great workshops, interactive displays and the adventures in April and May. You can also visit our Expo Page or Adventures Page for more information or click here to visit a page where you can view or download our Expo and Adventure Guide.

bring bags - imageCheboygan County and the City of Cheboygan are urging everyone to switch from single-use plastic grocery bags to re-usable bags.  At Earth Week Plus we have been supporting this idea for a long time!

BRING IT CHEBOYGAN!

Written by Karen Martin
In 2014, due to the year-long efforts of David and Karen Martin, both the City Council of Cheboygan and the Cheboygan County Board of Commissioners passed a resolution encouraging businesses and citizens to reduce plastic shopping bags. This approach is similar to St. Augustine, Florida’s all-voluntary approach. These two local resolutions make CHEBOYGAN FIRST IN MICHIGAN TO REDUCE PLASTIC SHOPPING BAGS!

So come on Cheboygan, let’s clean up our town, protect the environment, and save the animals who suffer from these bags at all stages of bag-life. Remember: BRING IT CHEBOYGAN!!
