How To Reduce Light Pollution

Phyllis Theermann

Most of us are familiar with air, water, and land pollution. Did you realize that light can also be a pollutant?

Light pollution, the inappropriate or excessive use of artificial light, can have serious environmental consequences for humans, wildlife, and our climate.

Wellesley resident and 7th grader Stella Glassenberg is encouraging our community to learn about light pollution and what Wellesley is doing to reduce it. She is also offering steps that families can use to help reduce light pollution in their homes.

Here is a great after school or weekend family activity! Review Stella’s Light Pollution PDF, discuss ways your family can reduce your light pollution, and figure out a plan to make it happen.

Thanks Stella for sharing your work on light pollution with all of us.
