A Plastic-Free Philly exhibit at the @acadnatsci aims to reduce plastic pollution and keep our waterways clean, by promoting environmentally friendlier options such as drinking tap 🚰 and using refillable bottles. (PSST. Did you know we'll be hosting #SustainPHL at the Academy of Natural Sciences next month?!)

💧Waterline: an installation by Silas Mcdonough comprises three large vessels that explore the relationship between water and plastic.

How do you reduce your plastic use?

#DYK that adding compost after a long, hot summer enriches the soil and keeps it healthy? It can also save you precious time in case of a prolonged winter.

Here's a step-by-step guide to putting your garden to bed each fall:
* Start by removing any dead plants 🍂 or annuals (plants that don't come back yearly).
* Pollinator/native gardens can be left alone and cleared out the following season if your space permits. These overwintering plants provide a lot of habitat for little critters!
* Add a 2" top dressing of compost to your growing space
* You can additionally cover with straw, leaf mulch, 🍁 🍃or plant a cover crop

DYK cigarette butts are mainly composed of microplastics and are the most significant contributors to plastic waste? According to the WHO, every year, 4.5 trillion cigarette butts pollute our oceans, rivers, city sidewalks, parks, soil, and beaches.

One neighborhood in Philadelphia is doing something to tackle these little menaces. The @fishtownneigbours association installed a receptacle from @terracycle that can hold hundreds of cigarette butts before being shipped to a Terracycle facility to process and recycle. Find the container outside @cedarpointphl.

Where have you spotted cigarette collectors? Should cigarette companies be held accountable for their waste? Sound off below ⬇️

Power to the pebble!🪨✌️ We LOVE to see the community come together for a cause, continue reading for the story of Fishtown's favorite roundabout.

Rouge Fishtown neighbors planted a pollinator-friendly garden and decorated it with rocks at the roundabout where York Street, Frankford Ave, and Trenton Ave meet. The stunt did not go down well with Philadelphia Streets Dept, and they planned to remove the rocks, citing safety concerns. After some back and forth with the community members and neighbors in Fishtown and many emails to the streets dept, the roundabout garden has been granted the city's permission to live.

How are your neighbors caring for the community? Tell us ⬇️

I was on my way to work when I noticed that a dump truck was emptying out one of the recycle bins that are found on the corners of Center City (it was at 22nd and Walnut). Is that a common practice for the city to mix recyclables with the trash?
Just had to connect, the name inspired me as I'm an Eco Warriorette named Philly! Live in New Zealand and beginning my journey to turn the little old village of Waipu on its head
When in May is this years March against Monsanto? Thanks for the info.
Call your PA state representative and tell them not to support harrisburg's effort to stop PA municipalities from banning disposable bags. They are taking away local governments ability to have local control of their borders!
City Council is holding a hearing on Monday March 21 at 10 AM about Philadelphia Water Department's handling of our water. PLEASE join us to protest fluoridation. FLUORIDATION INCREASES LEAD IN OUR WATER. We have documents and are in contact with Councilwoman Gym's office. We will have signs, and need people to show we do not agree with being fluoridated. FFP!
Lets start a long term program to transition off fossil fuels one neighborhood at a time. Instead of replacing gas lines. Its being done elsewhere. My Fast Forward Philly outlines how.
Great to have Christine at the helm of Sustainability. Would like to see subsidies for contractor training for Passive House Consultants, Builders and Tradesmen like New York is doing.
Why recycle? Recycling Prevents Pollution When recycled materials are used in place of virgin materials during manufacturing, we avoid the environmental damage caused by these materials ending up in landfills and the ocean. Need plastic to be recycled in the best, most eco-friendly way possible? We got it. Recycle with us today! In Easton, Pa.
