Now on to the good stuff…

On October 27th Central Park hosted a Pumpkin Festival, and our Green Teens were in full effect! Green Teens from Queens, Manhattan, and the Bronx participated in a Recycling Competition to see which borough could recycle the most and properly. And the winner was….

Manhattan (Congrats!) came in 1st with 39 bags of recyclables. Queens came in 2nd with an awesome total of 32 bags, and the Bronx was 3rd with 11 bags (Nice Job!).

Kudos to all the Green Teens who participated!!!
