Beginning in 2008, Go Green! Greenpoint! was the first Earth Day Festival to take place in North Brooklyn. Since then this event has become an annual staple of community life. Each year Go Green! Greenpoint! has grown in participating oranizations/businesses and attendance.
Our event includes education with schools, community groups, and companies displaying research or art projects 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. Th event hosts writing and art contests for children and adults, wellness with judo, yoga, and other classes, vendors with enviro-friendly merchandise, and live music and dance performances.
We look forward to seeing you again this year!
