There’s no better time to enjoy the great outdoors than during Earth Day. NYC offers many things to do outside including free events at the city’s best parks. The national holiday is a bit like Mother's Day, but for Mother Nature. Although you don't have to buy her a gift or bouquet from one of the city’s best flower shops, you can give the gift of volunteering by planting some blooms or cleaning up a nearby park. Another way to help the cause is to turn off the lights in your NYC apartment and unplug your gadgets. Need a little retail therapy? Help save the planet by hitting one of Gotham’s best thrift stores and grab some preloved duds. Better yet, one of the most popular thrift chain’s in the city is hosting a $1 sale. The options are endless, so take advantage of our comprehensive guide including everything you can do to celebrate Earth Day in NYC.
