It’s December, and as we reflect upon the year, we know that there is no way to sufficiently thank you for your continued hard work and dedication to make Pittsburgh a greener, more sustainable City – but we will try.
Thank you to everyone who volunteered their Saturday mornings to help plant trees in Pittsburgh neighborhoods. Without your help, we would not have been able to plant 3,622 trees this year.
Thank you to the people who recycle at home, encourage others to recycle, and go the extra mile by toting blue bags to and from work to ensure that no unnecessary waste goes into our landfills. Without your help, we would not have been able to recycle over 14,000 tons of material this year (a greater than 10% increase from 2009!).
Thank you to everyone for just doing your part. We hope you have a warm and safe holiday season and we’ll see you in the New Year! (Read on to learn about opportunities to be green this holiday season.)
