The Chester County Planning Commission is excited to announce the release of a new environmental booklet in honor of the 50th Anniversary of Earth Day, “50 Ways Your Community Can Protect Our Planet!”
With many of the Earth Day 2020 events canceled due to the current COVID-19 crisis, Chester County’s goal is still very much focused on the environment and climate action. This booklet – which can easily be downloaded, printed, or shared across platforms – features five areas, each highlighting a different topic to help protect our planet’s resources and ensure a resilient environment that supports healthy communities. The topic areas include: Rewilding the Suburbs; Greening for Everyone; Discovering New Routes; Corralling Growth; and Befriending the Environment.
The Chester County Planning Commission hopes to influence and inspire residents in and around Chester County to make a positive impact on the environment, and within their communities, whenever possible. Whether contributing to a community garden, helping to create a new park, or installing solar panels in your home – there are so many ways to help protect our planet within our local communities.
