The Lynnhaven River Now organization works with residents and businesses to familiarize them with sustainability practices and proactive protection of the local waterways. They normally educate city residents on these practices through outreach events (such as a Civic League meeting – again, hopeful…) but due to COVID are taking different approaches. Such is this promotion of the Pearl Home Program.
Becoming a Pearl Home costs nothing. Pearl Homes incorporate sustainable practices in the home, yard, and neighborhood. Good daily habits and decisions make the difference. Whether you have installed a rain barrel, made a pledge to “scoop the poop” or switched to a reusable water bottle and reusable grocery bags, you are helping to bring our waterways back to life.
Interested Residents can fill in a brief application (use link) to qualify for a free Pearl Flag & Pole to recognize their efforts to improve the environmental health of our waterways and community! https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/pearlhome You will be amazed at how easy it can be!
Some neighborhoods are working on Pearl Home Campaigns & becoming Pearl Neighborhoods.
