In Celebration of Earth Day, M-NCPPC, Department of Parks and Recreation, Prince George’s County and Pepco Partner to Help Residents Reduce Their Carbon Footprint
Riverdale, MD - The Maryland-National Capital Park and Planning Commission, Department of Parks and Recreation in Prince George’s County has a mission to conserve and protect the natural spaces and species that call our county home. The Department is committed to making the best efforts to uphold sustainable practices. To continue that mission, The Department encourages Prince George’s County residents to reduce their carbon footprint by taking simple, daily actions. The app, called EcoCRED, is an effective and user-friendly tool to assist in doing so.
“When each of us makes small changes in our daily routine, using tools like EcoCRED, we build habits that help reduce our ecological footprint,” states Bill Tyler, Director of the M-NCPPC, Department of Parks and Recreation. “The EcoCred App will provide residents with information on the Department’s sustainability efforts and events, and how they can take part,” Tyler concludes.
Benefits of the EcoCRED App include:
- Build Eco-Friendly Habits - Discover simple daily actions that truly make a difference (like Bring your own bag and Veggie Day). After you choose your habits, the app will help you stay on track.
- Measure & Track Your Footprint - Use the ecological footprint calculator to measure your environmental impact and track your progress toward lowering it.
- Get Offsets - With offsets, you can lower your impact on the planet and help bring powerful sustainable initiatives (like wind farms) to life.
- Collective Action - Join over 40,000 EcoCRED members and be part of collective climate action. See how your individual efforts tally up and reduce carbon emissions.
“At Pepco, we are committed to powering a cleaner and brighter future for our customers and communities,” said William Ellis, Pepco region vice president. "We are pleased to partner with the Department of Parks and Recreation in Prince George’s County to help customers make more sustainable decisions that are healthy for our environment.”
