BEST DIRECT ACTION ENVIRONMENTAL ORGANIZATION THAT’S OLD ENOUGH TO BUY BOOZE

Time’s Up! NYC

These guys have been fighting the good fight for over 20 years, from

way back when “environmentalist” conjured the image of bearded, knit
cap-wearing dudes fighting off a whaler with their bare hands (and
there’s nothing wrong with that image). To survive two decades of
thankless, under-funded righteous campaigning is no small thing, but
Time’s Up! has done more than merely survive. One huge thing they’ve
been advocating for two decades has been a more bike-friendly New York
City, and maybe, just maybe, after all the Critical Masses and Central
Park Moonlight Rides and the heartbreaking Ghost Bike project, the city
has begun to respond with actual bike lanes. Hats off to you, Time’s
Up!, for being such a big part of making that happen.

  • Time’s Up rocks! I personally volunteer with this group and it’s amazing how much they get done with only volunteers and a very small budget. You can truly see the positive changes all over the city. Time’s Up definitely deserves this award after all of it’s long hard work and it’s nice to see they are finally being recognized. Thank you Time’s Up for making my New York City a more environmentally friendly place.
