Metro Celebrates Earth Day
To mark Metro’s commitment to Earth Day and all things green, we have partnered up with Earth Day Initiative New York (6 years running) to promote innovative green ideas from forward-thinking people. We’ve invited celebrities like Ian Somerhalder, Bill Nye and Adrian Grenier to weigh in on the environmental issues that matter most. There is an Op-ed from John Oppermann, the executive director of Earth Day Initiative New York. You can also find original Metro content focusing on biodiversity, a sharing economy and the Earth benefits of a vegetarian diet. Check out the content in-paper or online and follow us on Facebook and Twitter to gain access to all of our Metro green coverage.
Want to get involved? This spring Earth Day New York is celebrating the 45th anniversary of Earth Day and the 25th anniversary of Earth Day Initiative New York. Over the years, Earth Day Initiative New York has organized high-traffic events connecting hundreds of thousands of people to important environmental causes and also developed year-round programs to bring the Earth Day ethos to homes, schools, and workplaces throughout the year. This spring’s Earth Day events will take place in Union Square on Sunday, April 19 from 12:00 to 7:00 pm. The event will include dozens of exhibitors representing environmental campaigns and green businesses, a sharing economy exhibition, a book swap, a green vehicle exhibition, live performances, as well as kids’ activities. So get out there and celebrate the environment and have some fun!
