Happy E Day!

Celebrate the 40th anniversary of Earth Day the Big Apple way!
  • If you're home, Planet Green has been celebrating Earth Month. It debuted Treehugger TV last night. It has also been featuring Verge programming, including the series Future Food on Tuesdays at 10 PM.
  • Grand Central Terminal has its annual Earth Fair in Vanderbilt Hall from 19 April to the 24th, and outside the terminal from the 23rd to the 24th of April.
  • You can visit Battery Park City for free activities like bird watching, poetry readings and workshops.
  • Head to the corner of 8th Avenue and 41st St. (Port Authority) to see the world's largest green pop-up shop, Terracycle's Green Up. You can view products made from chip bags, yogurt containers and other so-called waste materials. The exhibit runs until 1 May.
  • Gershwin Theatre is the venue for a Town Hall meeting from 230 to 430 PM. Ecoplum will be joining the Broadway Green Alliance.
  • There are various concerts and shows, including one in Times Square from 11 AM to 2 PM where Mayor Bloomberg will make an appearance. I'm just not too crazy about shows during Earth Hour or Earth Day. It seems like it defeats the purpose because of the resources used to produce these shows. At least the April 25 Concert for the Planet at the Bowery Ballroom will make a donation to 1% for the Planet.
  • If you want to volunteer, 24 April is Million Trees NYC Spring Planting Day across the five boroughs. The goal is to plant 20,000 trees in 16 park sites.
