April 18–24, 2021 CCEW Theme: “Reducing Our Footprint with Chemistry”
For years, chemists have been promoting a better world through recyclable plastics, cleaner-burning fuels, phosphate-free detergents, environmental monitoring, and green chemistry initiatives. To promote the positive role that chemistry plays in the world, ACS established the Chemists Celebrate Earth Week (CCEW) public awareness campaign. During CCEW, ACS members and chemistry enthusiasts celebrate by coordinating events and communicating the importance of chemistry.

Our 2021 CCEW plan is just being formulated: have some ideas for virtual programs that can help us focus on the theme of using chemistry to reduce our carbon footprint? Let us know! Our CCEW Coordinator, Lindsey Welch, will be glad to assist in identifying supporting resources from ACS.
