Green Bowie is the umbrella term used to describe all of the City of Bowie's environmental initiatives. Green Bowie helps the City government, residents, businesses and more to become greener, cleaner, and more sustainable. Everyone can be involved in one way or another, whether it be:

  • Installing a rain barrel on your property
  • Purchasing/using a compost bin
  • Volunteering with the Green Team for gardening efforts and invasive plant removal
  • Replacing older (less energy efficient) light bulbs with LEDs
  • Choosing not to use single-use plastic products
  • Driving an electric vehicle
  • Or using natural products that do not contain harsh chemicals

These are all actions that will define the future of Green Bowie. Please browse our webpages from the left-hand menu to find more Green Tips relating to things like recycling, lawn care, trees, energy efficiency and much more. Have a question? Reach out to the City Sustainability Manager or Watershed Manager. And to learn more about our City goals please view our Sustainability Plan.
