This weekend stop by the sixth annual Go Green! Greenpoint Festival in McCarren Park. Held on Saturday, May 11 from 11 am to 5pm, Go Green! is celebrating Earth Day-practices on an everyday level. The outdoor event offers a variety of ways to keep the neighborhood eco-friendly.
Make sure your old cellphones and laptops never end up in a landfill by taking advantage of the festival’s free electronic waste recycling. All broken and unwanted electronics will be recycled locally in Greenpoint by Green Chip, a company with a zero landfill policy. Also in mix will be gardening demonstrations by local businesses, recycling stations, eco-goods for sale, and craft projects for children.
