Last Sunday we officially launched our Upper Green Side Eco-Map at the 92nd Street Greenmarket. The Eco-Map will be an important resource for local residents looking to find environmentally friendly resources in their own neighborhood – whether it be local/organic food, bike shops, car-share locations, or places to recycle clothing, batteries and other items. We hope this starts a conversation in the neighborhood about what our community can do to be greener.
The printing of the Eco-Maps could not have been possible without the support of Councilmember Dan Garodnick who provided a grant that enabled us to print the map. Councilmember Garodnick, together with Upper Green Side’s Glenn McAnanama, awarded the first Eco-Map to Civitas‘ Gorman Reilly, in recognition for his unyielding service of fostering a sense of place and community on the Upper East Side.
Look for the maps throughout the Upper East Side as we continue to distribute them over the next couple of months!
