Earth Day Challenge 2020

MHLC staff at Earth Day clean-up in 2019.

This year, MHLC is hosting Earth Day in a new way!
For the entire month of April, we are challenging our MHLC community to get outside and pick-up trash at your favorite preserve, outdoor space, or along the frontage of your yard or home. Spreading the celebration out will help to take the pressure off one big day, making it much easier to practice social distancing. We encourage you to take part anytime during these 30 days to show that every day is Earth Day! Share your experience by taking photos of you, your family, and your pets taking part and submit them to MHLC. 

Here’s the Challenge:
We are having a contest for the “best garbage photo” from your clean-up! MHLC staff will vote for the winning Earth Day photo on April 22nd, and a grand prize winner will be chosen on the final day of the challenge, April 30th. The winners will receive an embroidered MHLC logo baseball cap! Follow us on Facebook, Twitter, or Instagram for a chance to win additional prizes!

A Collective Impact
We may not be able to gather as a group, but we can still make a big splash! By each of us taking time in the next month to document our efforts, we are hoping to show a collective impact equal to, or even bigger than, our past clean-up efforts! Your photos will be shared on our social media feeds as well as a photo gallery on the MHLC website.

It is extremely important to practice proper social distancing when completing your clean-up. Use caution and stay safe when working near roads! We look forward to seeing your photos soon – please send submissions to

Good luck and happy Earth Day!
