9.  Join a Earth Day 5K Green Tour

A great way to celebrate Earth Day is by heading outdoors! Join the 5K Earth Day Green Tour to meet and get involved with some of New York City’s green groups. Tour-goers will have the opportunity to learn about the various sustainability initiatives happening around the city. Visit a living green wall and a Broadway theater that’s going green, and also participate in a solar energy tutorial, among other activities.

The three-hour tour, hosted by Earth Day Initiative, includes lunch and free gift bags provided by Ecobags, the official bag sponsor of Earth Day New York.
