It’s International Women’s Day, and the 2019 theme is #BalanceforBetter.

Green Philly is a women-owned company, and we were grateful to be included on Jefferson’s Graduate Sustainability Network’s forum last night. As one of the questions asked about being a woman in sustainability, I reflected on our recent all-women climate panel (photo above). Rather than drawing attention to the fact women spoke about science, entrepreneurship and activism, I let it go, since we shouldn’t have to point out every time a woman fills a role that traditionally goes to a man.

In that spirit, we’re also surrounded by many women-owned sustainable businesses in Philly. Here’s just a FEW of them to check out today.
