Plans include a curated digital Eco Film Showcase – sharing where people can find important films on environmental topics, an earth-inspired recipe challenge, and family-friendly activities for all ages to undertake among other ideas currently in the works.

Pittsburgh Earth Day To celebrate the 50th anniversary of Earth Day and Pittsburgh is well poised to observe our important role as a thriving center for sustainability, green innovation, LEED-certified development, farm-to-table initiatives, and environmentally-friendly events. Pittsburgh Earth Day will present a series of events that celebrate the undeniable evolution of Pittsburgh becoming a global leader in green initiatives. New for 2020, Duquesne Light Company (DLC) will be the Title Sponsor of all Pittsburgh Earth Day events. DLC is not only committed to reducing the environmental impact of its operations, but also to helping its customers make sustainable choices in order to create a dynamic future for the community.

By offering incentives to customers purchasing electric vehicles (EV), installing EV charging stations throughout its service territory, and educating customers with an online EV guide, DLC continues to push the mark on the region’s electric mobility efforts. “Duquesne Light’s commitment to sustainability isn’t just a priority today, it’s also critically important to the continued future growth and prosperity of our region,” said DLC President & CEO Steve Malnight. “We are committed to our role as a leader and partner in tackling the issues brought on by climate change, and continuing to provide green products and services that enable our customers to achieve their own sustainability goals.”

More details and information are continually being added and updated at PittsburghEarthDay.org. Additionally, the Pittsburgh Earth Day Website will serve as a resource of all Earth Day activities and events occurring in the region. Organizations and communities hosting events can submit their information for inclusion at: https://pittsburghearthday.org/event-submission/ The City of Pittsburgh is an active partner in presenting and promoting Pittsburgh Earth Day, viewing the events as a vibrant celebration of the city’s mission to continue to grow as a sustainable city. "Pittsburgh is a vibrant, shining example of a city investing in and adopting green and sustainable technologies and practices," said Mayor William Peduto. "We look forward to celebrating our efforts during Pittsburgh Earth Day 2020. But it is even more important that we continually turn an eye towards how we can improve, innovate, grow, and lead the way when it comes to being a city truly invested in transformation and development." Additional Pittsburgh Earth Day details are being finalized and will be unveiled in the coming weeks. This includes a very special tribute by some of Pittsburgh’s best known and loved musicians.
