Plenty of people recycle, but how many recycle their clothing?
On April 26 at the Green Arts on Grand Street Community Awareness Project’s Earth Day celebration, everything from hats and shoes to dresses and bedding — not to mention household electronics — can be dropped off for recycling.
And the day of eco-conscious style is sporting free entertainment, too. The all-day festival features a performance by the Brooklyn Philharmonic’s brass trio and a screening of the Metropolitan Opera’s “La Fille du Regiment” (pictured).
“It’s a celebration of culture and Brooklyn, and a celebration of the environment,” said organizer George McGrath of Waste Management. “We want to draw people in with entertainment but also give them a chance to recycle.”
The Green Arts on Grand Street Community Awareness Project’s Earth Day event runs 11 am to 5 pm on April 26 at the Grand Street Campus High Schools (850 Grand St. at Bushwick Avenue in Williamsburg). For information, visit www.cenyc.org/recycling/grand.
