Passport to Green New York: A Five Borough Eco-Treasure Hunt


You could win a flat-screen television just for supporting eco-friendly businesses.

This spring, Earth Day New York is sponsoring a green-themed scavenger hunt throughout the five boroughs.

Earth Day New York has signed on 24 specific Earth-friendly businesses – including Bike and Roll New York City – and New Yorkers that swing by can enter to win a cash prize or electronics — such as a laptop or flat-screen TV.

People that visit 12 or  more “green” destinations can win prizes including $500 cash, a Toshiba flat-screen television or a Toshiba laptop.

People that go to at least five destinations can win gifts such as $250 in gift cards.

Participants must collect stamps at each destination on their “Passport to Green,” which can be downloaded at

Earth Day New York hopes to raise awareness of the green places in the city and support environment-friendly   businesses.

The contest runs from March 20 to April 21.
