Ohio is celebrating its 212th birthday with special events at the Ohio Statehouse in Columbus.
The Columbus Public Service Department showed off a new step today in getting the city green.
Environmentalists say Ohio is allowing polluters to damage the health of many residents, particularly the state’s poorest and minorities.
A Columbus city council member is encouraging the city and its residents to think green. The city council will be voting tonight on legislation that would change the city’s purchasing rules in an effort to do just that.
