Go Green! Greenpoint! was the first Earth Day Festival to take place in North Brooklyn in 2008. Since then this festival has become an annual staple of community life. Each year, Go Green! Greenpoint! has grown in participating organizations and businesses, and attendance. Our event features educational displays by schools, community groups, and companies that will enhance our appreciation and understanding of our environment. We have also provided recycling with stations for bicycles, electronic equipment, clothing, books, and toys. The event hosts green contests for children and adults, wellness with judo, yoga, and other classes, vendors with enviro-friendly merchandise, and live music and dance performances. See a Go Green! Greenpoint video here!
Since 2009 Town Square has been promoting environmental consciousness at the local level through our Greencycle Swaps. One man’s trash is another man’s treasure! Drop off your cleaned gently-used & working items, browse the selection & take as many “riches” as you can carry for a $5 donation. Don’t forget to bring a bag (or cart) to tote them all! All remaining items are donated to local charities and churches. Town Square is a qualified 501(c)(3) not-for-profit institution. Your donation will be tax deductible to the full extent of the law.
