If you are thinking about adopting a “greener” lifestyle in the New Year, the PA Resources Council offers the following 10 actions for becoming more environmentally friendly in 2021--

-- Learn Something New: Attend a PRC online workshop to learn about backyard composting, rain barrel installation and many other topics including a free Recycling and Waste Reduction webinar offered each month.  Read more here.

-- Develop Healthy Habits: Browse brochures and other online materials to learn about healthy options such as using non-toxic alternatives – such as making products from baking soda and vinegar – for house cleaning chores.  Read more here.

-- Get Organized: Clean out the basement/garage/garden shed and then properly dispose of hazardous materials and/or e-waste at PRC collection events.  Read more here.

-- Shed Pounds Instantly: Donate a wide variety of gently used items – such as furniture, clothing and building materials – to local nonprofits at PRC’s annual ReuseFest. Read more here.

-- Invest More: Invest in your home and invest in clean water by scheduling a Stream Smart House Call to see how you can better manage stormwater on your property.  Read more here.

-- Get Involved: Learn how to bring glass recycling to your neighborhood now that many municipalities no longer include glass in curbside recycling.  Read more here.

-- Get Moving: Head outdoors to take part in a neighborhood litter clean up event; document the impact of litter on the environment and then enter PRC’s annual Lens on Litter photo contest. Read more here.

-- Gain A New Skill: Roll up your sleeves and volunteer with PRC East’s rain garden program to learn how to design and construct rain gardens to help reduce stormwater runoff and improve water quality.  Other volunteer opportunities include PRC collection events and educational programs.  Read more here.

-- Make A Difference: Become a member and support PRC’s vital programs that help to conserve and protect Pennsylvania’s environmental resources for each generation. Read more here.
