A born and bred New Yorker, I hit the city streets this past summer with my bike, a flip camera and a question "How would you make New York a Greener Apple"?
Eighteen short films later, I've created a grassroots campaign where New Yorkers themselves tell how they would make their city of New York a "greener" place to live. I hope these man-on-the-street clips are both educational and entertaining -- and that ultimately they will be recognized, so that I, with the help of the city or private funding, can implement some of the fresh ideas that the New Yorkers interviewed have envisioned.

The Daily Green's Community News section is a forum for our audience to get the word out about issues that matter to them, enlist support, get help and advice, celebrate successes or share humor. The best submissions are personal (why I started this venture) short and to the point (400 words or so) and written in a style that speaks directly to the audience as peers (not like an ad or press release). E-mail submissions to firstname.lastname@example.org and include "community news" in the subject line. Photos are also welcome, provided the submitter has rights to publish the image. Be sure to include credit and caption information.
