Deb Gordon’s guest was Pamela Lippe, President and Executive Director of Earth Day New York, which is a 501(c)(3) organization that promotes environmental awareness and solutions through partnerships with schools, community organizations, businesses, and government entities; and also serves to educate policymakers through conferences and publications.
Earth Day New York was founded with the mission of promoting a healthier, cleaner environment and to not only bring awareness about environmental issues but also encourage communities to become activists and take action. Ms. Lippe discussed how the organization has grown and influenced the community to become more conscientious about working to maintain a healthy, sustainable environment for future generations. Expressed the need for each person to do one small but impactful thing daily to improve the environment, such as recycling, reusing, eating organically, and travelling more energy-efficiently.
Spotlighted Earth Day 2013 in New York and the organization’s efforts to involve the general public in the many free eco-friendly, family oriented events at Union Square and Grand Central Station being held to commemorate it. Some of the highlights include musical entertainment, movie screenings, children’s activities, a green vehicle runway show, and a clothing swap. Earth Day has grown to be celebrated in most countries around the world, and more than 1 billion people now participate in Earth Day activities each year, making it the largest civic observance in the world.
