Our Mission

GreenEriePA serves as a green guide to Erie individuals and businesses. GreenEriePA highlights successful green initiatives in Erie County while serving as a portal to local green organizations and opportunities. The site provides how-tos for individuals and businesses looking to save money while helping the environment.


GreenEriePA is part of Gannon University's Erie-GAINS project (Erie-Gannon Alliances to Improve Neighborhood sustainability). Started by Ann Bomberger and Michelle Homan, two members of the Environmental subcommittee of Erie-GAINs, the site launched in 2012. The site had been written by dozens of Gannon students and interns over the course of years. All articles were reviewed carefully by local stakeholders and professors before being posted.

Since then, the website has changed quite a bit! Starting in 2015, the Gannon University partnered with Environment Erie, and the site got a new look and was hosted by Environment Erie. In 2019, GreenEriePA was fully integrated into the Environment Erie website, resulting in a one-stop-shop website for all the environmental warriors in Erie County.
