Ban Fracking in the Delaware River Basin!

YOU'VE GOTTA BE KIDDING.....


Staff at the Delaware River Basin Commission (DRBC) are drafting plans to allow fracking in the critically important Delaware watershed, which provides drinking water for over 15 million people.
Four governors — Delaware, New Jersey, New York and Pennsylvania — and the president have a voting representative on the DRBC. Six years ago, communities around the Delaware watershed came together to keep fracking out of the region. Now, we need to fight again.
Sign below to tell your governor that there is NO safe way to frack!

SUSTAINABLE CHERRY HILL EVENT A SUCCESS!

The Runnemede Green Team hosted last night's Sustainable Sips (thanks to Patti Adair!) at the Phily Diner, 31 South Black Horse Pike in Runnemede, NJ. 

Patti brought much of her enthusiastic Green Team which included the Mayor of Runnemede and several town council members.

We had 30 - 40 attendees at the spacious upstairs room at the Phily Diner. The event showed a good cooperation between Sustainable Cherry Hill (SCH)  and TriCSA.  We estimated that the crowd had at least 15 "SCH people", 10 "TriCSA" people, 5+ Patti's group, and others.

Sustainable Jersey sponsored the food (pizza, mozzarella sticks, chicken, and sliders), while Phily Diner made a few special Green Drinks for the occasion too.

CHERRY HILL GREEN DRINKS TONIGHT!

Sustainable Cherry Hill’s Green Drinks and Tri County’s Sustainable Sips are having
another joint event TONIGHT! Network with other sustainability enthusiasts in a welcoming atmosphere. We have the upstairs all to ourselves. Event is FREE (cash bar to purchase your own drinks) and light snacks are provided.

DATE: Wednesday, Feb 1st, from 6:00pm – 8:00pm
LOCATION: Phily Diner and Sports Bar, 31 S Black Horse Pike, Runnemede, NJ 08078
