Meet the Chore Volunteers - Ed L.!

Prior to joining Chore about 1 ½ years ago, Ed Lipiner worked for the US Environmental Protection Agency in Atlanta, where he conducted field assessments and reviewed environmental impacts of federally funded projects.  He also worked with the Passaic County Planning Department as a principal Transportation Planner, where he conducted planning studies encompassing all modes of transportation, as well as managed programs providing transport services for disadvantaged populations in the County.  

In addition to his time with Chore, he continues volunteering in support of the environment by participating in EcovillageNJ, a meetup group collaborating on housing projects based on environmental and cooperative principals,  and GreenFaith, a local group of religious congregations that sponsor events to promote environmental sustainability. He enjoys hiking and travel, and has developed his own website/blog about Urban Affairs.   “Through my association with Chore, I have gained an appreciation of the challenges and potential solutions facing seniors and disabled people who wish to remain in their homes.  Chore means people connecting with and helping other people in need—a foundation for an ethical and humane society.”
