Going Green from the Ground Up on the Lower East Side

May 11, 2009

On Monday, May 11, 2009, the Green Buildings sub-committee of Go Green Lower East Side (GGLES), Solar One, and the Council on the Environment’s Office of Recycling Outreach & Education (OROE) sponsored a series of workshops entitled “Green from the Ground Up.” These workshops included three presentations where the attendees learned how to set up an effective recycling system in their buildings, which rooftop opportunities are available, and how to use energy efficiently in order to green their property.

Over forty people participated in the event ranging from residential building managers, superintendents, board members, and other residents. The event was held at University Settlement and was co-sponsored by Assemblymember Brian Kavanagh, CENYC, LES People’s Mutual Housing Association, Cooper Square Committee, Fourth Arts Block, and the LES Business Improvement District. For information on how to bring these workshops to your residential property, please contact Paula Castro in Kavanagh’s District office at 212-979-9696.
