Earth Day New York in Union Square


Sunday, April 19th



Our neighboring namesake park is one of the most active, vibrant parts of NYC, and the city's hub of Earth Day 2015. Rally here on Sunday the 19th to hear from local environmental leaders, listen to live music, and share the meaning of the holiday with your family. One of the most inspiring aspects of this year's festivities is the Sharing Economy Exhibition, focused on exploring the potential for a more selfless social structure to rescue the environment for generations to come.
