RECYCLING PROGRAMS

Recycling helps conserve the large amounts of energy it takes to produce and transport new items; Get rid of clutter and keep usable items out of the landfills. Set up a recycling system appropriate for your home, office or school.


SPACE DETOX

A sustainable lifestyle is a non-toxic one! MOST of the products we normally use are filled with toxic chemicals that pollute our bodies and the planet. Switch to natural products and improve the health of your space.


TREE CARE

Damaged from hazards such as vehicles, people and pets, trees are tackled with issues like broken limbs, compacted soil & pests, reducing their ability to provide us with clean oxygen. We are certified Citizen Pruners providing planning, planting and ongoing maintenance for your established site.


New York City’s Greener, Greater Buildings Plan (*GGBP) requires property owners and managers of municipal facilities, such as school buildings, to benchmark and upgrade their sites in order to control environmental issues such as energy consumption, chemical pollution & storm-water runoff.  These changes are vital to our city’s sustainability goals; the problem is that many people don’t have the information or resources to make it happen.
