The dead of winter isn't exactly the time when most think about the environment (ie. brrrr, it's cold! What Global Warming?) but nonetheless there are a couple of upcoming eco-events in the slope which you should be aware of:
Sunday, January 17: Electronics Recycling Event Sponsored by the Lower East Side Ecology Center
Prospect Park West and 3rd Street (okay, it isn't on Fifth Avenue, but all of us need events like this)
10:00 AM - 4:00 PM
Saturday, January 30: The Brooklyn Green Team's Year 2 party!
Bar Reis (375 Fifth Avenue)

The party will benefit 5th Avenue eco-store 3rLiving's in-store electronics recycling program, to help keep it free for the community!
