WE CAN MAKE A DIFFERENCE

On Saturday evening, September 11th, community members had a conversation about renewable energy, reducing carbon emissions to zero by year 2050, and what individuals and municipalities can do to reach this goal. Special guests Jess Cadorette, Chester County Director for Conservation Voters of PA and Paula Kline, Educator and Sustainability Expert joined the discussion held on the Chester Springs Library’s lawn.

Participants shared what they are currently doing to reduce carbon emissions, as well as what they plan to do in the future. Such as, home energy audits conducted by PECO and considering green options and renewable technologies for transportation, appliances, and home maintenance. John Matthews, a member of the West Pikeland Township Environmental Advisory Council (EAC) says, “Individually we can make a difference. . .and influence our neighbors and businesses by implementing these sustainable recommendations.”

This was the final conversation in a summer-long series hosted by the Chester Springs Library and the EAC. Conversations were funded through a Libraries Transforming Communities grant from the American Library Association.
