Green Philly Green Philly is a media company making sustainability local, accessible, and affordable. Our mission is to connect people to eco-solutions in the greater Philadelphia region, while also facilitating the sustainability community’s growth.

Paralleling our passions, Green Philly grew organically from our frustration with the misnomer that sustainability was not accessible or even just plain simple.

Happy 🌎 Earth Day 🌱 🌳 friends - co-founder/editor Julie here. I’ve been thinking all day about what to say on here, as it’s an ✨important✨ environmental day of recognition. But for us, we live sustainability EVERY day. (And that’s not a catch phrase.) To me, sustainability is finding those change makers and moments wherever I am. It could be walking around my neighborhood and spotting a rain barrel, up-cycled planter or neighbor made wildlife refuge. It’s traveling across the US (or abroad) and seeing composting barrels or anti-littering messages. It’s hiking in nature and spotting wildlife or simply residents that make the parks their place of joy. And it’s seeing #climatechange right here in Philadelphia - whether it’s the rare sight of I-676 flooded or flooded streets during increased rain events.

So for us, Earth Day is almost another day for us — just (mostly) everyone else acknowledges it in their own way. What does earth day mean to you??

@bainbridgegreen has been an active space for 300 years! The reimagined and accessible green space between 3rd and 5th on Bainbridge serves the Queen Village community, as well as visitors to the neighbourhood. We love having access to this to community tables to grab lunch and people watch on a beautiful spring day in Philadelphia. Swipe to see photos of the original block and the inauguration of the horse water fountain by Caroline White in 1910!

This past Saturday, thousands of Philadelphians participated in cleanup projects across the city during the 15th annual #phillyspringcleanup day. @philastreets estimated over 400 different projects took place from Center City, to the Northeast, to Southwest and West Philly (and everywhere in between.)

Since its 2008 launch, a combined total of 200,000 volunteers have removed more than 11.4 million pounds of trash and 950,000 pounds of tires from city streets at nearly 6,750 project sites.

How did you help cleanup the city? Tell us ⬇️. 📸: Crystal Jacobs

Hajjah Glover, founder of @_glovergardens, aspires to expand her business to reach more people. She hopes to one day hire a team of staff members and build community sovereignty beyond the borders of this city. The greatest challenge in running Glover Gardens, she said, is meeting the demand she knows exists for food justice and access.

“I grew up in these neighborhoods but I never had the consciousness,” said Glover. “My community – we don’t have the fresh fruits and vegetables. That’s an issue and I want to come up with solutions.”

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.
