Why Join ACE?

What does it take to create a better and healthier environment? It takes all of us getting involved to create and maintain a healthy environment for Arlington.

What can one person do? Everything we do affects our environment, for good or bad. Take practicing energy efficiency at home--it reduces greenhouse gas, decreasing the energy generated by providers to heat or cool our homes. And rain barrels reduce the chemicals, oil and debris transferred from our yard to the street and into the Chesapeake Bay and they also conserve water.

It really takes everyone adopting more environmentally friendly habits to make Arlington's environment better.

ACE is Arlingtonians for a Clean Environment. We're a small group of volunteers and members working in our community, removing debris from our parks and streams, educating and connecting citizens to practical solutions for a sustainable lifestyle. We know we're not all motivated by the same things. So we're sharing stories from some of our members who may have interests that resonate with you. Take a moment to read Al's story and consider joining ACE. Together we can make it happen!

Please help us reach our goal of increasing our membership by 25% by October 31.

Alex's Story:

The environment is one of the most important issues we face. I want to raise awareness of environmental issues among students and to help the environment before it's too late.

As a member of ACE, I want to support the community and at the same time make a difference globally.
