Is big city living getting you down? Do you feel like you're not "making a difference" in your community? Join the HII Crew for our new WEEKLY community action days! Bring neighbors, colleagues, friends and strangers for our FREE action-based events and help make a positive human impact in NYC and the world!
Join the HII Crew, in partnership with amazing community volunteers from Brooklyn Day Habilitation Center, in caring for our local street trees. Each week, we'll meet at a different NYC park to clean up, aerate, plant bulbs, and mulch our City's green treasures--street trees.
As part of our Ecopreneurs program, join the HIi Crew in helping small businesses, and consumers, take simple steps to combat global climate change, while saving money and supporting healthy communities.
After a 10-minute training, volunteers will hit the streets to recruit "Cool Businesses"--who pledge to keep their doors and windows closed when their heat or AC is on. Taking it a step further, we'll ask customers to show their support for Cool Biz by pledging to only shop at climate smart businesses, who don't let money--and climate-impactful energy--literally fly out their doors.
No experience necessary. Just show up at 2pm for training! _______________________________________________
