4 Ways to Get Your Hands Dirty for Earth Day Posted on April 8, 2015 by Anna Archer Share this post Earth Day is on Wednesday, April 22, which means there will be plenty of festivities happening around the City of Pittsburgh to celebrate all things green. Although we love a good party, we also think it’s important to remember that you can have a big impact with a small gesture, like volunteering for an organization’s clean up day . Here are a few suggestions of great, green organizations that need your help cleaning, greening and beautifying Pittsburgh for Earth Day: 1.
