New York Earth Day Overview

Earth-day_s165x110

United States Senator Gaylord Nelson thought up Earth Day in 1970 and managed to draw over 20 million participants to the holiday’s first celebration. Decades later in 2009, the United Nations agreed to name April 22nd International Mother Earth Day to recognize the importance of the world’s vital ecosystems.

Earth Day is now recognized by over one billion people in countless cities like the aptly named Big Apple.  With its fruit inspired nickname, it’s hard to deny that New York City is one of the best places to celebrate Earth Day.

Earth Day New York boasts a laundry list of eco-conscious Earth Day events like New York Cares Day. There, nearly 4,000 New Yorkers volunteer their time to clean, mulch, and plant in green spaces throughout the city, ensuring its beautiful parks are ready for summer.

Meanwhile, psychedelic Earth Day celebrants head to the Green Festival (New York), where they can sample an organic beer and wine garden, make purchases at eco-fashion exhibits, and participate in DIY workshops, all while puffing the magic dragon.

Not too far away, attendees at Earth Day Grand Central are educated on the contemporary state of our environment as they meet and greet local and international green business owners.

New York City and Earth Day might not sound synonymous at first, but with its plethora of Earth Day parties, the Big Apple is the place to be on Earth Day.
