This Week in Sustainable NYC (7/29-8/4)

Updated: Jul 30, 2019

Can you believe it's already August?! Where has the summer gone? This week I finally got out of town for a little mini vacation - and it was glorious! Upstate New York was in the 60s and 70s, way better than the 109 degree humidity in the city! Plus, there was a pretty cool waterfall to swim in!


Now I'm back in NYC and ready to hit up some fun sustainable events! See you there!
