Here’s How to Mark Earth Day 2021 Near Your Chestnut Square Apartment

April 21, 2021

Every April, people around the globe come together to do their part to promote environmental sustainability. Earth Day, held this year on April 22, is an opportunity to take actions, big or small, that can help increase awareness about eco-friendliness and demonstrate a commitment to living these principles throughout the rest of the year. While large-scale community clean-ups, planting events and educational seminars are mostly sidelined this year out of safety, there are still ways you can show your appreciation for Mother Earth, all without barely leaving your Chestnut Square apartment.

A great way to honor Earth Day is by patronizing one of the many local eateries that are committed to sustainability. One such spot is Roots Café, located less than one block from your Chestnut Square apartment. Open for breakfast and lunch, Roots has sustainability at the core of its business practices and its menu.

The restaurant uses compostable coffee cups, containers and cutlery, all of which are made from renewable materials. Roots is a farm-to-table spot, so you can trust that your dishes are crafted with the freshest ingredients, all sourced from sustainable farmers in the Chester County region. Because the dishes are made with seasonal ingredients, the menu is often-changing—so you can go back as many times as you’d like to try something new, while continuing to support different farmers!

When it comes to the food, fresh is the focus—from omelets brimming with meats and cheeses crafted on farms just minutes away to crisp salads made with the season’s best veggies. You can even finish off your healthy meal with a little indulgence and try one of the craft cocktails, or favorites from local breweries and wineries.

This Earth Day, take the time to give back to those working to make our community a cleaner and greener place!
