This Saturday is Earth Day. It’s a moment in the year when we can connect as a community and take the time to celebrate the joy of caring for the planet, to renew our determination to mitigate climate change, to empower each other, and to uphold the work that remains to be done.
What does that look like for us? It means recognizing that everything we do every day to live sustainable lives matters. It means we stop throwing out usable things. We compost our leftover food and yard waste. We donate our still good and useful stuff to the circular economy and keep as much as possible out of the landfill and out of the greenhouse gas emission loop.
Big Reuse is part of the fabric of life in New York City. We're working with communities and neighborhoods every day, helping everyone learn about, use and make compost. We're doing street tree care with school groups and neighborhood associations. We're giving kids worm bin tutorials, we're showing gardeners how to fold compost into their raised beds, and lots more.
Because we're all in this together, this Earth Day please make a donation in support of Big Reuse and our work in our town, New York City!
