MAKE A PLEDGE, GET A SUCCULENT
October 16, 10am-6pm
We all love succulents; these cute, easy-to-care-for plants make any home or office feel brighter. To get your hands on some new plant friends -- and get motivated to green your own life -- stop by Timberland’s grassy pop-up park at Flatiron South Plaza (across from Madison Square Park) on Tuesday. (You’ll spot it by the 13-foot replica of Timberland’s classic yellow boot on display.)
In addition to doling out knowledge about the benefits of greener cities, Timberland will reward anyone who takes their greener lifestyle pledge with a free potted succulent (while supplies last), plus other giveaways. The pledge is simple, but can make a big impact -- think easy tips like giving up plastic straws, using a refillable water bottle (and recycling any plastic ones you find), and joining a local community garden. Enjoy the green space while you’re there by relaxing under the birch tree, where they’ll display your name after you take the pledge. By the end of the day, the trees will be full of names of New Yorkers who committed to make the city a little bit better.
