Philadelphia’s waterfront (Penn’s Landing) is experiencing a renaissance – from development plans never closer to being realized, to the amazing pop-up Spruce Street Harbor Park (http://bit.ly/1jmWDuz) and the new Fringe Arts headquarters and performance space (www.fringearts.com). That is why Keep Philadelphia Beautiful was so proud to team up with the Delaware River Waterfront Corporation (www.delawareriverwaterfront.com) to implement Keep America Beautiful’s Cigarette Litter Prevention Program right in the heart of Penn’s Landing.
Together, Keep Philadelphia Beautiful and the Delaware River Waterfront Corporation ahve installed thirty new cigarette trash receptacles along the Waterfront, and will be embarking on outreach and education focused on the environmental damage caused by cigarette litter. We’re already seeing the impact, too!
Check out pictures of our new receptacles here (http://on.fb.me/1tyZAgT) and read all about the KAB Cigarette Litter Prevention program here (www.preventcigarettelitter.org). And the next time you’re in Philly, go visit the waterfront! We promise you’ll fall in love with it, and be as passionate as we are about keeping it beautiful!
