    What You Can Do to Help

    Incorporating green living practices into your daily life may be easier (and more fun) than you think! Here are just a few of our favorite ideas:

    • Go Vegetarian Once a Week (Meatless Mondays!)
      One less meat-based meal a week helps the planet and your diet. For example: It requires 2,500 gallons of water to produce one pound of beef. You will also also save some trees. For each hamburger that originated from animals raised on rainforest land, approximately 55 square feet of forest have been destroyed. Find some meatless recipes featured by our Farm Markets and learn how to make your favorite recipes more heart healthy.
    • Rethink Bottled Water
      Nearly 90% of plastic water bottles are not recycled, instead taking thousands of years to decompose. Buy a reusable container and fill it with tap water, a great choice for the environment, your wallet and possibly your health. The EPA’s standards for tap water are more stringent than the FDA’s standards for bottled water.
    • Make a Rain Barrel
      Do your part to conserve water by taking a Rain Barrel Workshop. Rain barrels are effective in storm water usage and water quality. They can even help lower your water bill during those long, hot summer months!
    • Buy Local
      Consider the amount of pollution created to get your food from the farm to your table. Whenever possible, buy from local farmers or farmers’ markets, supporting your local economy and reducing the amount of greenhouse gas created when products are flown or trucked in.

    • Plant a Garden
      Planting a garden is a great way to enjoy fresh produce at home! We are proud to supply our Metro Café with fresh produce and herbs from the Metro Health Garden. We also partner with the United Church Outreach Ministry (UCOM) and the City of Wyoming to provide a Community Garden in a neighborhood where there is great need and limited access to healthy food. Watch for information about our gardens and tips on making your own garden come to life.
    • Drug Take Back Day
      Protect your family, your community and our environment by properly disposing of prescription medication. Twice yearly, Metro Health partners with the DEA’s National Take Back Initiative to offer Drug Take Back Days. Anyone from the community can anonymously drop off expired or unused medications (prescription, over-the-counter and controlled substances). Check our Live Healthy Calendar to learn more.

     

    • Community Clean-Up Day
      Metro Health Village is home to a number of walking and biking trails and Frog Hollow Park, making it a great escape for the whole family. So every spring, we host a day to spruce up Metro Health Village, making it ready for another season of family fun. Please join us – this may be the most fun you ever had picking up trash! (High school students can also earn Community Service Hours by participating.) Check our Live Healthy Calendar to learn more.
