As New Yorkers mark Earth Day across the city, Pier 57 will host special programming to celebrate the planet – bringing together climate enthusiasts, local organizations, and community members of all ages. The event will feature a variety of festive activities for the community to enjoy, including:

Clothing Swap: Pier 57 is partnering with Veggie Mijas – a collective of BIPOC individuals advocating for food and environmental justice – to host a Clothing Swap in Pier 57’s Living Room space. Guests can bring up to 5 items of clothing or shoes in good condition to swap and share. For personalized advice on mending, upcycling, or caring for your clothes, the Reclypt team will help families make the most of their wardrobe. All leftover clothing will be distributed between local organizations such as Collective Focus and NYC Fair Trade Coalition.

Discussion Group: Climate Café will lead meaningful conversations on sustainability, climate action, and the impact of even the smallest steps toward a healthier planet. Black Girl Environmentalist, Remake, We Are Atlas, and Worn Not Torn will also participate in the discussion.

Earth Day Cookie: Market 57 vendor Local Roots will be offering a special Earth Day cookie – available for one day only – made with black sesame and matcha icing. Foodies can also enjoy other vegan options including hearty mapo tofu, crispy scallion pancakes, cucumber salad, and more.

The event will take place at Pier 57’s Living Room, a public gathering space located on the ground floor of the Pier’s southern edge with views of the Hudson River on Saturday, April 20th from 1pm to 4pm. For more information, visit
