Earth Day

Happy Earth Day from PMG! - FlexTradesHow appropriate – the beginning of Passover and Earth Day fall on the same day. One of the major elements of the Passover Seder is a recognition of spring and the power of the natural world even as we recount miracles. The elements on the Seder plate have a dual purpose as they remind us of the natural world and our deep connection to it.

Earth Day is one way to honor and celebrate our remarkable planet. “Earth Day is a reminder of the importance of environmental conservation and sustainability, encouraging us to come together and take action for a healthier planet and brighter future.”

What can we do around Earth Day? We can take composting seriously. How?

First, be aware that the city is expanding the Curbside Composting program to all 5 boroughs, beginning in October 2024. Currently, our zip codes (10463 & 10471) are part of the program, but others are not. Click HERE for more information, which includes information sessions being held right now.

At the same time, the Adams administration is evicting Big Reuse from their composting site under the Queensborough Bridge. Big Reuse has been the most consistently active organization to provide food scraps pickup in New York City, including during the pandemic. The city has gone back and forth on composting, and there is always the chance that the program will simply be taken away. All the while, no matter what, Big Reuse has made composting happen. Please SIGN THE PETITION to save the Queensbridge site.
