Every year to commemorate Earth Day, Rock the Earth volunteers give back to the communities in which we operate year-round. In New York City, Chicago and San Francisco, we’ll be getting our hands dirty with park cleanups. In Denver, we’ll be partnering with our friends and collaborators at the Alliance Center for an Earth Day celebration.

New York City:

On Saturday, April 18, Rock the Earth will be hosting a New York City park clean-up for Earth Day. We will be meeting at Astoria Park in Queens at 2 p.m.

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.

Please contact Kevin O’Donohue at for further information.


Located in the heart of the Humboldt Park Community, Humboldt Park totals 219 acres which include an inland beach, lagoon, boathouse and music court, picnic island, formal gardens, stables, many playgrounds, a solar panel and turbine, and a waterfall.

On Sunday, April 19, Rock the Earth volunteers will be engaged in a fun park cleanup from 1 – 4 p.m. (Meet in front of the Humboldt Park Boathouse). If you’re interested in helping us out and helping to honor the Earth in the process, please contact Jen Farthing at

San Francisco:

Once again, Rock the Earth will be bringing the Bay Area public and the media relations community together all in the name of environmental sustainability and philanthropy. On Earth Day, Wednesday, April 22, led by our friends at Kulesa Faul, a number of public and media relations firms will be gathering together to conduct a park cleanup of The Presidio National Historic Landmark. Located in the heart of San Francisco, the Presidio is characterized by wooded areas, hills, and scenic vistas overlooking the Golden Gate Bridge, San Francisco Bay and the Pacific Ocean. It was recognized as a California Historical Landmark in 1933 and as a National Historic Landmark in 1962.

If you are part of a PR or media relations firm and would like to participate in this fun and fulfilling event, please contact Joanna Kulesa at



Spring cleaning just got easier because our friends and landlords at The Alliance Center (1536 Wynkoop St.) are hosting a recycling and reuse drive on Earth Day, Wednesday, April 22! Bring hard-to-recycle items like electronics, old beauty products, lightbulbs and resuable items like books and clothes to the parking lot between 12−7 p.m. and 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, you will receive a card for a free live concert MP3 download.
