Hi Everyone! I am headed into NYC again as part of my travels for the Prius Plug-In-MPG Challenge for Charity. I will be staying again at Element New York Times Square West.
On Tuesday night, July 23rd, I will, once again, be hosting the Green Drinks NYC SPARK Speaker Series which features this month Dr. Michael Finkelstein, author of "77 Questions for Skillful Living."
The SPARK series is produced in partnership with The Moderns.
Please check out the video interview below with Russell Porter, Director of Sales for Element New York Times Square West.
From July 12th to Aug 12th, I will be driving a Prius Plug-In Hybrid as part of the 2013 Toyota Prius Plug-in-MPG Challenge. Toyota has partnered with seven prolific environmental influencers (myself included) from the tri-state area for Wave Two of the 2013 Prius Plug-In-MPG Challenge – a fun competition to help educate local communities on the benefits of electric vehicles. The winner of the challenge will receive a $2,500 donation to the charity of their choice.

The charity I am competing for is New York-based Waterkeeper Alliance, a global movement of on-the-water advocates who patrol and protect over 100,000 miles of rivers, streams and coastlines in North and South America, Europe, Australia, Asia and Africa.
I would like to thank Earth Day NY for facilitating my participation in the Prius Plug-in-MPG Challenge in NYC. Check out Earth Day NY on Facebook.
And, a big shout out to Element, Times Square West for providing hotel accommodations while I am in NYC for the challenge.
