Link Roundup of the Week: Local Activism
Posted By Olivia Chen On April 17, 2009 @ 2:00 pm In Blog links,New York City | No Comments
Earth Day (April 22)  is rapidly approaching and while we know that living an eco-conscious lifestyle should be a a daily habit  and not a once-a-year exercise, we are thrilled by the eco-minded buzz on the interweb. We are most excited to hear about local intiatives that are helping cities green their surroundings and engaging their citizens in doing so. Here in New York City, Project Earth Day  (check back later for more information!) makes us think twice about how we approach what we wear every day. We are also celebrating Mayor Bloomberg’s MillionTreesNYC  campaign. But no matter where you live, we encourage you to check out what efforts are being made in your town.
Treehugger  shows us that Santa Monica is on its way to creating edible landscapes  through backyards-turned-community gardens.
