Have Fun and Celebrate Earth Day NY

If you're in New York City at the end of April, you should definitely celebrate Earth Day like New Yorkers do.  By spreading Earth Day events out for about a week, you will be able to partake in more fun and eco-friendly activities.  You can head to Central Park with an empty can and create your own pot for plants.  If you have kids, you should check out these Earth Day activities as well.  This celebration is perfect for families.
