It Starts At Home: Meet Our February Champion Amy Lahip

Dear friends,

When we think of environmental champions, we may only remember famous individuals like Greta Thunberg or Rachel Carson. However, there are incredible champions making a difference right here in our county.

Meet Amy Lahip, an environmental community champion from Chino, CA. An SBC resident of 19 years, she believes that she needs to make sure that she does her part to keep her community clean. 

“For me, it starts in the household. I keep our cooking oil in a separate container and take it to a collection center, along with old electronics and medications.”

Amy believes that it is important to include her kids in the family’s discussions about going green. She and her kids, Emily and Ethan, regularly drop off their household hazardous waste at a nearby collection center in Chino. As a family, they have made two goals this 2020.

  1.     Reduce their use of plastics
  2.     Encourage others to find ways to help the environment in their homes

“Our environment is our place to live and for our kids to grow up,” Amy says. To help fulfill their new year’s resolution, they are planning to get reusable straws to further limit their plastics.

As Amy has shown us, making a difference does not have to be hard, especially if you start with small actions at home.

    Dear SBC Storm Water,

    Thank you for your outreach efforts. There is a female resident in Rancho Cucamonga who I believe would be a candidate for your Community Champion.

    Her name is Dee Matreyek and she is Director of The Root 66 Community Garden at 12151 Foothill Blvd in Rancho Cucamonga.

    Please advise if I can be of assistance.

    Thank you,

    Gino L. Filippo
