New York City just got a whole lot greener. (Actually, that’s a bit of a misleader, but I knew my opening statement would show up on your screen in bold and I wanted to get your attention.) The city of New York is pretty green with its energy efficient housing options, good water supply and wide reliance on public transportation. (In fact, according to City Mayors, “per capita, New Yorkers use fewer resources and put less pressure on their surroundings than any other city of its size.” Impressive.)
But a more truthful statement would be: New York City green just got< a whole lot easier to find.
Where is this green (other than in Central Park)? That’s where the NYC edition of Greenopia comes in handy. Having just this week landed in the Big Apple, it features more than 1,300 local businesses, services and organizations. Yes, this must-have on the west coast has finally made its way east. (Take that, New York! We had ours before you!)
