Can We Make the Big Apple Organic?

On February 9, 2011, in New York, by Nathan

One thing is for sure: New York City is teeming with Planeteers.  Every time I go for a weekend it seems like a dozen new sustainable restaurants have sprung up, and I meet dozens of people who are doing what they can in their own way to live the life of a Planeteer.

We stopped into a watering hole on the Lower East Side to do some brainstorming on how to expand our community and make sure we were doing as much as we could to help local and sustainable businesses thrive in Manhattan.  We talked about making maps of local places so that they would be easy to find, making a wiki page so that people could all contribute info on their favorite local/sustainable place and, of course which local brew ordered that night was the best.  Our meeting ended as the band began to play and we all sang along to observe the holidays in the city.

The great thing is the community of people.  Really, really great people.   Not pictured here, but certainly great are Maddy and Tom who are both perusing their dreams of working on Broadway, acting and writing plays.  They also wait tables, and are passionate about sustainability.  There there is Neal, the bar manager at Frankie’s in Brooklyn, who loves real food.  Similar is Jess who wrote a blog here, and knows quite a lot about the NYC food scene.  Kristin and her colleagues at Wide Eyed Productions who make time to get an environmentally-themed children’s show in their busy company schedule.  Mary is a top hair and makeup artist who wonders if her industry can ever be sustainable.

Many, many more Planeteers all working to do their part and spread the word.  If you are a New Yorker, and you are reading this?  Get in touch :)
