A cozy upgrade – something of use.

Floor to ceilings makes for a great view,
but dievca’s apartment doesn’t warm-up quickly before the morning sun.

  • 50″ x 70″

Fuzzy, cozy, light and wash machine friendly, the throw has been extremely useful, but not super stylish.

THE STORY

In 2015, Hudson River Park began composting horticulture waste, including grass clippings and pruned tree material to help green the Park and support NYC’s zero waste by 2030 goal.  This project was made possible by Hudson River Park Friends who procured an automated composter with the generous support of donor Chris Fiore and L Brands Inc.

On June 12, 2017 the Park expanded its composting efforts and launched our Community Compost Program in partnership with NYC’s Department of Sanitation (DSNY) and Council Member Corey Johnson. Now at seven locations throughout the Park community members can drop off their food scraps from 7am-7pm daily.  The Park mixes these food scraps with the Park’s horticulture waste to make healthy compost that then enriches our plant beds and trees to help the Park flourish.

In 2018, HRPK turned nearly 420,000 pounds of organic waste into compost. HRPK employees and community members were educated at workshops, volunteer events and public programming, including the Park’s first annual Pumpkin Smash, to encourage best practices in composting.

dievca believes that every little effort for recycling, upcycling and re-using will add up. Composting is a simple and happy addition to her efforts in the City. Maybe you will find that composting works into your World, too.
