Earth Month 2024 Wrap-Up


The Tarrytown Environmental Advisory Council (TEAC) and Sustainable Sleepy Hollow (SSH) joined forces for a powerful series of Earth Month events urging residents to “Refuse Plastic for the Planet.” Together we are better, and the community engagement and overall enthusiasm for the month proved that!

2024 Earth Month was an awesome success! From walks around the neighborhood to clean ups across the village we had participation from people of all ages, getting dirty and exploring our wonderful spot on Earth. During April: 

  • Hosted a Compost Giveback Day
  • Started our Community Garden at the Paulding School
  • Explored trails by the lakes and learned about native trees, invasive species, and some of Tarrytown’s history
  • Cleaned up trash, debris and invasive vines across the village, parks, along the Hudson River, and in and around the Lakes
  • Planted native seeds and gardens
  • Hosted a Repair Cafe, helping community members fix household and personal items, and avoiding increased waste being sent to  the incinerator (aka waste to energy plant)
  • Created a Save the Earth banner with children at the YMCA Healthy Kids Day/Duck Derby!
