It’s not easy being green, but it sure is more than worth it. Once again the Go Green BK Fest pitched canopies along the northern edge of McCarren Park and filled them with advocates for the environment, vendors, craft activities, and local schools showcasing their environmental initiatives.
Local electeds stopped by. Assemblyman Lentol handed out reusable bags that will come in handy when the plastic bag ban goes into effect on March 1, 2020. Comptroller Stringer, Brooklyn District Attorney Eric Gonzalez, and Council Member Stephen Levin came by to hang out for a bit.
There were two stages this year. One had a marionette and puppet theater that had a standing and stroller room only crowd and a center stage for music acts.
All who visited Go Green couldn’t help leaving with the urge to be more environmentally friendly. From becoming a caretaker of street trees to becoming more dedicated to the 3 Rs (reduce, reuse, recycle).
