Why Support Green Philly?
Green Philly was created out of passion.
I can vividly remember the day when my journey with Green Philly began. When my colleague revealed that the company’s recycling was being thrown in the trash, I was outraged and knew we could do better. Green Philly was created to make sustainability accessible and fun.
Eleven years later, a lot has changed. But our passion has stayed the same.
Today, our stories and events now help over 40,000 monthly readers to live more sustainably as Philadelphia’s largest and most trusted sustainability site. Our events provide education, networking and job opportunities – such as SustainPHL, the city’s annual sustainability awards and celebration. Our weekly newsletter also provides tips and advice to thousands of subscribers, who often email us with questions on topics like recycling and ethical products.
Green Philly is a woman-owned business, and our organization has been sustained without crowdfunding or business loans. Instead, we’ve relied on bootstrapping and a bit of gumption, generating modest revenue from things such as events and sponsorships.
We need your help so that we can create more editorial content and make Green Philly even better. If you value our work, please help us keep this community growing by becoming a supporter.
