That’s why I go Green

Our OPEN green HOUSE was a fabulous day filled with amazing local businesses, green products, healthy food and so many of our wonderful community taking it all in.  NY1 agreed with us and stopped by to film some of the happenings.  Check out the video below!

While all this was happening, we also launched our KIDS SONG CONTEST with a submission deadline October 31st.  We got Nathan Tysen (professional musician and all around nice guy) to create a melody, verse and chorus, and have invited kids from all over NYC to write additional verses on what they do to be green everyday!  The winners will star in a professionally produced video, along with some other great prizes.  Is your kid the next eco idol?  click the link below to see Nathan and a few of our talented 14th Street Y kids singing  “That’s Why I Go Green”.

While we’re proud of the work we’ve done, we’re still  continuing our journey towards and greener building and a greener world.  Do you have ideas?  Would you like to join us?  Please email us at Greenteam@14street
