GreenHolidayNYC: Giving to the Planet During the Holiday Season

December 7, 2015

By Pamela Berns


With the holidays upon us, you can make the decision to be either naughty or nice when it comes to your carbon footprint. From treats to trees, from toys to travel, your choices make a difference in the health of the planet. How can New Yorkers stop dreaming of a white Christmas, and take actions toward a green one? Here are a few ideas for sustainable celebrating.

Show Your Support for GreenHomeNYC

December 2, 2015





On #GivingTuesday, GreenHomeNYC gives thanks to our scores of dedicated volunteers who have made GreenHomeNYC a leader in educating the next generation of “green” professionals and advancing energy-efficiency and sustainable practices in the built environment.


I’m Katie Schwamb, and I’m reaching out to ask for your support. We are a fully volunteer run organization, so all funds go toward operations–we have no paid staff. I’ve been a volunteer at GreenHomeNYC for four years, leading our Green Career Transitions program, which provides professional development resources and networking opportunities for emerging and transitioning professionals seeking careers in the sustainability and energy efficiency field.


In addition to the Green Careers program, the GreenHomeNYC Green Building Tours and Monthly Forums programs also rely on our dedicated volunteers as well as the generosity of speakers who dedicate their time and expertise and venues which donate their space.


Our Giving Tuesday goal is to match in dollar contributions the number of hours our volunteers have donated to GreenHomeNYC this year – or $3,500.


Please show your support for our dedicated volunteers so we can continue to make a difference in building a smart, resilient New York City.


With gratitude,


Katie and the entire GreenHomeNYC Board and Volunteers
