2 Great events to support a cleaner, greener environment.
So there’s a little snow on the ground, the sun is out and its melting away. Tonight is the February Critical Mass, a cycling event celebrated in almost 400 cities around the world. The last Friday of every month. Meet at 7:00pm on the North Side of Union Square Park, across from the Barnes and Noble book store in downtown Manhattan. Join in a celebration of human powered vehicles. The ride leaves Union Square around 7:20 and takes a leisurely stroll around town. Don’t worry if you see some police helicopters flying over head wasting your tax dollars…the cops are probably just violating some couples right to privacy.
Then there is a benefit to promote Bio-Diesel. This is an alternative fuel substance made from vegetable oil. A eco-savvy bunch is trying to open the first bio-diesel garage in NYC. When you say, “No Blood for Oil,” you can actually mean it. No need to be anti-car. Any diesel engine can use this vegetable oil based fuel. Learn more about this at the benefit.
