Go Green! Greenpoint & Riverkeeper Sweep – Two Eco-Friendly Events This Saturday (5/11)

Aside from its namesake, there is not a more appropriate place than Greenpoint to have two huge environmental events on the very same day. A neighborhood victimized with a long history of environmental abuse, Greenpoint can be a beacon for environmental healing and awareness. Participate this weekend to promote a cleaner and healthier Greenpoint.

This Saturday’s (5/11/13) Go Green! Greenpoint Festival in McCarren Park from 11am-5pm, will feature ogranizations whose mission helps the environments, like eco-friendly, recycled, upcycled and organic products as well as services that promote Earth Day.

The day will also feature the 1st Brooklyn Science & Art Pop-Up Museum as well as a Greencycle Swap!

Saturday is also the 2nd Annual Riverkeeper Sweep in which over 1,000s volunteer to clean-up the shoreline. Three clean-up sites are in our own backyard. The Java St site is full, but you can still register for McCarren Park Clean-Up and Grand Ferry Park.

Aside from these events, here is a list of 10 Things to Do to Clean-Up Greenpoint.

Be Green, Greenpoint!

About Jen G

After living in NYC my entire life, I found the strongest sense of community in Greenpoint, Brooklyn. Running this blog is truly an honor and the best part is meeting its readers in real life. Everyday I am energized by smiles and inspiring conversations with fellow Greenpointers who tirelessly do and create incredible things that are good for our community and share the same love I have for life here. If you see me walking with my little dog "D" - please say hi!
