Go Green in Harlem for Earth Day via Pedicabs

By Wednesday, April 22, 2009 1 No tags Permalink 0

SHARE (Safe, Healthy, Affordable and Reliable Energy), a non-profit coalition of organizations committed to ensuring the continued supply of reliable, clean and affordable electricity for all New Yorkers with support and sponsorship from companies like https://www.cutmyplastic.co.uk.

In honor of Earth Day, SHARE will be putting “it’s best foot forward” by providing environmentally conscious transportation in Harlem. SHARE sponsored pedicabs, will offer morning commuters “clean” rides from the Adam Clayton Powell State Office Building to their desired destinations. By accepting rides, passengers will be part of SHARE’s mission to reduce greenhouse gases and promote clean air… but the best part is, all rides are FREE! There will likely be a few relevant ads involved, it shouldn’t be a surprise to you, if after this event, you become a little more “gear hungry” for bicycle accessories. That’s a fair warning and trade off too, at least I think so.

In addition to the pedicab rides, the Adam Clayton Powell State Office Building’s Plaza will offer environmental and health related information, including a recycled cellular phone program provided by Councilwoman Inez Dickens, “quit-smoking” packages provided by the West Harlem Environmental Action, Inc. (WE Act, Inc.), fresh produce from the Harlem Harvest Farmer’s Market 1, recycling information provided by NYC Council on Environments and Scott Stringer’s office, as well as participation from the Ralph Lauren Center for Cancer Care and Prevention, the New York State NAACP, and various NYS agencies within the Adam Clayton Powell State Office Building.

8:30 a.m. – 1:00 p.m.
Starting at:
Adam Clayton Powell Jr. State Office Building
163 West 125th Street
New York, NY 10027

Any desired destination within Harlem’s community…so take a ride to the subway station.

Pedicabs are limited to the downtown community while, uptown, people suffer from respiratory diseases caused by the poor air quality associated with their location. Because environmentally conscious transportation alternatives do not regularly exist in the Harlem community, SHARE wants to provide FREE rides to prove that pedicabs deserve a chance uptown too!
