Chemists Celebrate Earth Week

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. Read more about CCEW.

Thank you for celebrating CCEW 2021 with us! Missed this year or just can't wait for next year? Join us for Chemists Celebrate Earth Week 2022 the week of April 17–23, 2022 with the theme, “The Buzz about Bugs: Insect Chemistry.” Resources will be available on February 1, 2022.
