Oak Park Apartments believes in living a green lifestyle which can be a challenge when operating properties that were built at the turn of the century: but by adding insulation and upgrading windows to decrease heat loss, replacing old toilets with low-flow models to save water and by using CFL bulbs in all common spaces to reduce our electrical usage we are headed in the right direction to help conserve the resources Mother Earth.
That is why we want folks to be aware of Oak Park’s sixth annual Earth Fest celebration which is scheduled for this Saturday, April 23rd from 10 a.m. – 2 p.m. at the Oak Park Public Works Department.
Oak Park, as a Village, has a very green mission and this festival is a way to keep that mission at the forefront, provide resident with the most current in green living concepts as well as having a bit of fun and celebrating the many successes of Oak Parks’ green goals!
Also, available at the Fest is Recycle Alley – this is an opportunity for residents to bring items that
aren’t part of Oak Park’s regular blue bin recycling program like blue jeans, eye and sun glasses, hearing aids, prescription medication, CFL light bulbs, cell phones, rechargeable batteries and more.
