Each year, the Earth Day Initiative (EDI)—a New York-based non-profit organization that celebrates the anniversary of Earth Day each year—puts on Earth Day New York in the northern plaza of Union Square park. Since 2018, Carbon Credit Capital has partnered with EDI to help reduce the emissions associated with producing the event in Union Square.
Dozens of organizations from environmental non-profits to green and innovative businesses will be in Union Square to help you learn how you can green your own lifestyle in minutes with Earth Day Initiative’s Do Just 1 Thing campaign. The event includes kids’ activities, live performances, interactive art installations, and is free and open to the public.
The Union Square event educating attendees about sustainable living, and that that isn’t just about luxury goods, or not shaving. The products, services and companies showcased at the event help you save money, live a healthier life and find new, simple ways to do so in an ecologically balanced manner.
Last year dozens of individuals, and a number of exhibitors all purchased carbon credits to offset the emissions created by their attendance that day. Altogether, we helped to reduce over 25 metric tonnes of carbon emissions—that’s over 55,000 pounds of greenhouse gas pollution.
Interested in offsetting, but not an exhibitor?
Those interested in making their lives, companies, products, or services carbon neutral are encouraged to find us at the event and have a chat. We will be making calculations all day, and are more than happy to personalize a carbon offset package for you.
CCC will be making and sharing updates live on social media, during the day’s events. We’ll also publish a blog post afterwards to share the final results.
We look forward to seeing you there!
