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!

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!!
We have some eco-tastic environmentally- friendly green workshops planned for The Earth Week Plus Expo. Click here to see the workshop details and Expo schedule page.
