A Greener Big Apple

OUT for Sustainability has come to New York City to inspire and mobilize action at the integration of LGBTQ identity and sustainability values. In this city where great minds and great influence combine, the potential for local AND global influence is huge. Look for programming ranging from Earth Gay service projects to OUT4S Salons on a range of topics, and maybe a good PSA campaign along the way.

To get involved with strategizing, planning, outreach, partnering, attending or any other ideas you have to get engaged, email newyork@out4s.org.

Earth Gay New York 2016

OUT4S-Earth-Gay-NewYork-2016
May 14th, 2016
1-3:30pm

OUT for Sustainability invites you to the first annual Earth Gay in New York City! This national movement comes to the big apple with a service project in Sherman Creek Park in Inwood.

This year we’re partnering with New York Restoration Project, the fabulous nonprofit launched by Bette Midler (yes, that Bette Midler). Get involved with supporting their compost operations in Sherman Creek. We’ll review what it takes to compost, starting with their windrow build, where they process food scraps from the Inwood Greenmarket and plant waste from our daily parks operations.
