Cuyahoga SWCD and Cleveland WPC to Host Green Cleaning Workshop in Cleveland

Cuyahoga Soil and Water Conservation District (SWCD) and Cleveland Division of Water Pollution Control (WPC) are conducting a “Green Cleaning: Inside and Out” workshop in Cleveland this summer.  The workshop will be held Thursday, July 16 at the Collinwood Recreation Center and will run from 6:00 to 7:30 p.m. The workshop is free and open to the public, however, participants will have the opportunity to make two green cleaners to take home and try for $10. 

For more information or to register, contact Claire Posius at 216-524-6580 x16 or by email at or to register online, go to under the events page. 

Registration is required by July 15.

The workshop is intended for anyone interested in reducing the use of toxins and other harsh chemicals at home and in the yard.  Household cleaners and lawn chemicals are potential sources of water pollution, making their way into local streams and rivers, and eventually Lake Erie.  By using more natural homemade cleaners, residents can reduce their environmental impact, save money, and reduce their exposure to harmful chemicals.

The workshop is sponsored by Cleveland Division of Water Pollution Control, Friends of Euclid Creek, and the Cuyahoga Soil & Water Conservation District.  To learn more about the Euclid Creek Watershed Program go to
