Happy Earth Day!

Today is the 40th anniversary of Earth Day, created in 1970 by Wisconsin senator Gaylord Nelson to encourage people to appreciate the planet and the environment. So say "no, thank you" to that plastic bag, recycle those bottles and cans, visit your local Greenmarket, and happy Earth Day!

Visit the recently-opened Brooklyn Bridge Park if you have a chance — the lawns at Pier 1, which were previously closed, have been opened to the public today in celebration of Earth Day, reports the NY Post.
