4. Reuse hotel linens

When you’re staying at a hotel, you can easily save water by reusing bed linens and towels. Many hotels have created company-wide policies that they won’t wash towels unless they are left on the floor by the guest, so just make sure to hang up your towels to reuse them.

5. Plan a green getaway

Plan your trip to Grove City and visit several “green” attractions, including:

Battelle Darby Creek Metro Park & Nature Center

Living Stream at Battelle Darby Creek Metro ParkVisit the largest park in the Central Ohio metro park system, which is complete with a bison habitat, over 1600 acres of restored prairies and wetlands, and a 15,000 square foot LEED-Certified Nature Center. At the heart of the Nature Center is a 53-foot living stream for visitors to have interactive learning about the riparian ecosystem within the park. The building also features low-impact design, such as a green roof, bioswales, climate-responsive design, and natural ventilation.

Mid-Ohio Foodbank

Add a volunteerism to your visit to Grove City by giving your time at the Mid-Ohio Foodbank. The foodbank gathers and distributes food to hundreds of food pantries, soup kitchens, senior facilities, and after-school programs throughout Central Ohio. This is a perfect option for groups looking to add Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) to their meeting or event. The facility also earned a LEED Gold certification by utilizing low-impact design features, such as native landscaping, rain barrels, re-purposing an existing building, and using water-efficient fixtures.

Hocking Hills Canopy Tours

SWACO

Perfect for student groups and groups interested in education, the Solid Waste Authority of Central Ohio (SWACO) provides an informative education session followed by a tour of the landfill. The staff are very knowledgeable and provide many applicable practices that anyone can do to live more sustainably. Everyone who takes the tour leaves feeling ready to make simple changes in their own life.

6. Attend EcoFest

EcoFest covers all things related to sustainable and healthy living in Grove City. Plus, you can test drive a Tesla! The event takes place on August 20th, 2016 from 10am to 7pm at Henceroth Park. Don’t miss this fun event!

Green and healthy living is so easy in Grove City, … here is your guide to being green in Grove City:

1. Use alternative transportation

According to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), transportation contributes 26% of US greenhouse gas emissions. You can dramatically reduce your footprint by using greener transportation practices, including the following ideas:

Drive electric vehiclesTesla Charging Station

Electric vehicles (EVs) don’t emit any tailpipe pollutants, so they are a much more environmentally-friendly option. There are many places to charge an EV in Grove City, like the eight Tesla charging stations off Parkmead Drive or the EV charging stations at La Quinta Inn or Best Western Executive Inn. Head to plugshare.com for a full listing of all EV charging stations in your area.

Ride your bike to get around

Grove City has a nice system of bike paths and separated bike lanes, which make riding around town really enjoyable. Find a map with all bike trails/lanes here. Plus, bike transportation is a good way to get fit while getting around!

Utilize COTA

The Central Ohio Transit Authority (COTA) has several routes with stops in Grove City. Additionally, they have a Park and Ride location, where you can park your car for free at the lot and ride COTA to downtown Columbus or elsewhere in Central Ohio. 

Lakefront Lines MotorcoachTravel by motor coach

If you want to get to a destination in a carbon-efficient way, then a motor coach is your best option. Assuming the coach is nearly full, you can cut your carbon footprint nearly in half by choosing a motor coach over a private vehicle. And compared to flying, motor coaches can reduce your emissions by 55-75%!

Rent small, hybrid vehicles

If you do have to rent a car when traveling, choose a small, hybrid vehicle to cut down on your fuel emissions. 

2. Eat and shop local

Eating and shopping locally not only supports the local economy, it also cuts down on carbon emissions because goods and food don’t have to be transported from far away.

3. Make sure you know the local recycling optionsRecycling Drop-Off Locations Map
