Huge news: Things will be a lot more “Blue” on Green Philly!

We’re psyched to share 2 big pieces of news that we revealed during our Holiday Happy Hour party

Green Philly Holiday Happy Hour 2019

On Wednesday night, we hosted our Holiday Happy Hour with 50 guests in WeWork. We also shared two exciting updates. (You get many surprises as a Green Philly Event attendee…)

Same Green Philly, More Exciting Content.

HUGE NEWS! We’re ecstatic to share that we’ve received a 24-month grant from the William Penn Foundation in order to elevate information about water quality as well as Philadelphia’s stormwater, waterfront access, and recreation through media posts and events.  

We’re going to be doing the exact thing we’ve been doing – making sustainability easy, accessible and low-cost to the region – while discussing how water is important to each of us.

What does that mean for you?

  • We’re going to be talking about water… a LOT!
  • We’re going to continue to be the one-stop-shop for sustainability, sharing easy, accessible and low-cost resources.
  • We’re going to be hosting the same events you love, with more creativity and new topics.
  • We’ll stay transparent! All projects and articles related to William Penn funding will be branded as such with logos and/or a reference. (And all our decisions are independently ours.) 

Love stormwater? Got Ideas?! Get involved!

Have pitches for articles, speakers and events to send us about stormwater, water quality, waterfront access and/or recreation? Want to find out ways to support Green Philly or advertise your organization’s water ties? Send them to contact@greenphillyblog.com.

We’re Moving!

Another exciting update: we’ve outgrown our space at WeWork and are moving to the Spring Arts area to 915 Spring Garden. The building is formerly the Reading Railroad offices and has been repurposed over the years into a textile factory, print shop, warehouse, and studio space.

Now, we’ll be in this reimagined space to do our own creative work! The space will allow us to work better as a team and gives us room to grow.

Stay tuned for more info.

We look forward to growing and celebrating with you, our dear readers as we welcome in a new decade of Green Philly.

  1. I am so impressed with what you all are doing. Thanks for making things happen in our beautiful city. It’s about time! Thank you to the William Penn Foundation for allowing these advancements. It’s providing a cleaner future and I have high hopes. I’m an environmentalist (not by trade) and an activist as much as I can be– and I have been wanting to make serious changes for a long time. So, thank you. Love your cat’s name, Julie and love your mission. The city is lucky to have you. Sustainability is NOT just a buzz word and you’re showing that.
