Sustainable Living Seminar: Greening Your Lawn
Wednesday, April 17, 2013
6:30 p.m.
Carmel Clay Public Library

ChemicalReactionIt’s the time of the year when we are thinking about those beautiful, green lawns.  But is your lawn really “green”?

Learn how lawn care chemicals are dangerous for your family's health and how to transition to organic lawn care.

View the movie “Chemical Reaction” about how the little village of Hudson, Quebec took action to protect its citizens from lawn care chemicals.  A brief discussion on organic lawn care will follow the movie.

Students will learn why it's important  to stay off the lawn after an application.

Adults will learn about alternative, organic lawn care options from Lynn Jenkins of Indiana Organic Gardeners Association.



Enter to win one of these door prizes to get you started on organic lawn care.

  • $100 Natural Lawn gift certificate
  • 20 pound bag of organic herb and vegetable food from Habig


Carmel Green Initiative is grateful for the opportunity to team up with the Carmel Clay Public Library, the Indiana Organic Gardener's Association, the Sierra Club Hoosier Chapter, and CGI members for this educational program. Together we can make Carmel, and the world, a more beautiful and healthier place to live.

Recycling Bins for Your Next Event
  • School Social/Carnival
  • Church Bazaar
  • Sports Event
  • Graduation Party
  • Neighborhood Party
  • Anywhere you have lots to recycle!

ClearStreamRecyclingBinNo matter how big or small, we're happy to provide you with portable recycling collection bins for your next event! Besides the cost of the bags, there will be NO ADDITIONAL CHARGE as long as the bins are returned clean and on time and the Post Event Form/Photos are submitted in a timely manner.  The credit card will be charged $55 per bin damaged or not returned.  The ClearStream recycling containers require a special sized liner, which is 40" x 45". We recommend a clear bag, so they are easily recognized as a recycling container and not a trash can!  We will provide you one free liner per bin you borrow.  Each additional liner after that will cost $1.00 each.  There is a small Usage Fee to borrow the bins, however, this fee is waived if the Post Event Form/ Photos are submitted within 1 month following your event.

CAFO Bills

CAFO Bills would provide better pollution controls on large scale, corporate animal farms/factories.   More information forthcoming.  If you wish to receive email updates on these bills (if they move), please indicate  on the green policy survey.
