Chemists Celebrate Earth Week (CCEW) is a community-based program of the American Chemical Society (ACS). CCEW occurs annually during the week of Earth Day, which is April 22 and is administered by the ACS Office of Science Outreach. The ACS joined the Earth Day celebration in 2003. There have been annual CCEW events ever since.
The ACS, a non-profit scientific organization of over 155,000 members, was founded in 1876. ACS provides a professional home for chemists, chemical engineers, and related professions. Its many services include scientific information, continuing education and job services for members, educational materials for teachers and students, and public outreach.
