Started by a former Pratt student, the gentrifiest of the
gentrifiers (no offense Cecilia), this website works as a wiki, but for
things more important than the life and times of Michael Jackson (no
offense entire staff): like, how can I plant a tree on my block? Or,
how can I start composting? The site allows members of Brooklyn and a
few other cities to trade advice and specific knowledge on local,
environmentally friendly programs; it doesn’t just identify sustainable
environment problems, but the sustainable environment solutions as
well. •

  • I work for Green Spaces in Brooklyn ( ). We put on the Green Business Competition ( ) mentioned with Gotham Greens, a client of ours, in the “Best use of God’s Old House”.

  • Nice article I interned for an eco-friendly auction/swap site . We participated in the Go Green Expo in April (in the Hilton Hotel ) , wish our website would have been nominated .

  • 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.

  • Check out my blog , I’m a teen trying to help the world and inform myself and others of the importance that being green can do .
    I think it’s awesome that people are trying to do the right thing in the green scene .
