Earth Friendly Resources

Looking for a few resources that can help you protect the planet this summer? The Allegheny County Libraries have you covered – check out the below resources for more information.

The Environmental Protection Agency is a great place to start if you are looking to learn more about protecting the environment and the ecosystems in your area. Want to learn more about native pollinators, safe radon levels, or waste cleanup then the EPA has information for you. The EPA is here to help and you can check out ways you can help too.

Looking to learn more about green buildings, agricultural research, or renewable energy then GreenFILE may have the papers you are in search of! GreenFILE has a lot to offer students looking into papers on environmental topics and those looking to research information on how humans impact the environment.

If you are looking for something a little more short form and easier to digest – perhaps for the tinier people in your life you might want to try looking at something from BBC Earth. BBC Earth has some short stories and video clips highlighting the natural world. If you are just looking to get a quick dose of the environment BBC Earth is a great option.

Happy Hot Summer Reading!
