Orland Park's Green Initiatives
Smart Living Team
Do you have a passion for our environment? Would you love to make a difference by getting your children involved? Why not share that passion and join the team?
There are hundreds of ways you can contribute to a
healthier environment. But where do you start?
Here are easy first steps to a greener life.
We are taking Earth Hour one step further. Every day, Monday - Friday from 12pm-1pm all nonessential lighting will be turned off in all village buildings. We encourage all business and residents to do the same.
The Residential Rewards program provides interested residents with ideas, concepts, and savings to upgrade their homes and offer alternative products and designs for green modifications.
The Village of Orland Park Recreation and Parks Department has several recycling drives. We are collecting writing instruments, corks, dairy tubs, batteries, and crayons. Stop by one of our facilities to drop off your items
TOSS (Take One Small Step)
Our Smart Living team is excited to launch TOSS, our new outreach program. Whether you are a scout troop, youth group, school club, or any other organization, Donna Kargol and her team of volunteers will be happy to meet with you. They will be glad to come with the TOSS presentation, crafts, and more to help educate your group on some simple things to do that will help protect the environment and learn about your carbon footprint. Donna can be reached at 708-403-6258.
Thank you to our 2012 Smart Living Sponsors.
