In yet another amazing Earth Month, Rock the Earth helped mobilize volunteers in Chicago, New York, San Francisco and Denver to give back to the communities in which we are active throughout the year. We are truly grateful for these Earth Rockers who demonstrate what it is to truly Defend the Planet by cleaning up their home towns!
New York City:
On Saturday, April 18, Rock the Earth New York volunteers, including several from the Old Navy store at Times Square, commemorated Earth Month 2015 with a cleanup of Astoria Park. Astoria Park, on the west shore of Queens, extends from south of the Triborough Bridge to north of the Hell Gate Bridge. With a panoramic view of the skyscrapers of midtown Manhattan in the south to the Hell Gate channel in the north, the scenery presents the diverse landscape of New York City. Over a dozen volunteers scoured the park for several hours.
Meanwhile, in Chicago on Sunday, April 19, Rock the Earth volunteers participated in a fun park cleanup of Humboldt Park. Located in the heart of the Humboldt Park Community, Humboldt Park totals 219 acres which include an inland beach, lagoon, boathouse, music court, picnic island, formal gardens, stables, many playgrounds, a solar panel and turbine, and a waterfall. Over two dozen volunteers helped RtE rock Humbolt Park!
Third Annual – Bay Area Agencies to Rock the Earth on Earth Day!
On Earth Day, April 22nd, leading public relations agencies in San Francisco will band together to support Rock the Earth. The event has doubled in size this year and participating agencies include Kulesa Faul, Bateman Group, Flashpoint PR, Eastwick PR, Karbo Communications, BOCA Communications, Highwire PR, Mindhare PR, and Spark PR.
The agencies are sending volunteers to The Presidio to work with the National Park System, planting native plants and restoring fields to their natural state. The group of agencies will also donate funds to Rock the Earth.
We would certainly be remiss if we didn’t also give back to the community that Rock the Earth calls home. Spring cleaning just got easier because our friends and landlords at The Alliance Center (1536 Wynkoop St.) are hosting a recycling and reuse drive for Earth Day, TODAY (April 22). Bring hard-to-recycle items like electronics, old beauty products, lightbulbs and reusable items like books and clothes to the parking lot between 12−7 p.m. where one of vendors will help take care of these items for you. For any mobile device (cell phone, tablet or USB-based WiFi/MiFi device) recycled with Rock the Earth at the Solar City booth, you will receive a LiveDownloads.com card for a free live concert MP3 download.
