We know that you value the environment. We do too. That’s why at DTE Energy, we work hard to take care of the lands, waters and living creatures. We demonstrate this commitment through sustainable environmental management practices. As individuals, our Green Team and other employees do their part by planting trees, installing and monitoring bird boxes, cleaning beaches and streams and much more.

While we demonstrate environmental stewardship every day, we also take time to celebrate and encourage activities that are making our state a cleaner and greener place to live.  This month, DTE and our employees will co-sponsor or participate in nearly 30 Earth Day activities across the state. We hope you’ll roll up your sleeves and join us.

Here are just a few of the ways in which you can get involved in celebrating Earth Day. Visit our website for a complete list of Earth Day activities.
