April is Earth Month and Long Beach is celebrating! You can participate in the many events taking place throughout the city listed on our Green Events Calendar and take action with the pledge below. Small changes can make a big difference when we all make them together. You can pledge to take just one action, or pledge to do all six! #GoGreenPledge
Each week pledge participants will be entered to win raffle prizes from the Office of Sustainability and partners, and all participants will be re-entered for a final prize at the end of the month.
