Happy Friday readers!

What did you do this week? Have you been acting drunk due to lack of sleep? Or drunk by the awesome pop up gardens that help our local economy? Celebrating our rising cat numbers in Philly?

Maybe even voting for Green Philly as Best Local Blogger on the Philly Hot List? (Hint hint… please!)

Regardless, good news: The weekend is back with a variety of things to do.

Whether you’re looking to join in a Bud Light park clean up, go for a family nature walk, or celebrate with a Northern Liberties street festival, Philly is the place to be.

These experiences home and abroad inspired her to take a closer look at her personal impact on the environment and ways to lessen it. Whether she's reminding others to recycle or supporting local farmers markets, she knows those small steps can add up to a greater positive change. View all posts by Linh Kostiuk
