Hoboken has several ways for you to save the planet and have a little fun this Earth Day. Here is our roundup of ways Harlow residents can help on April 22 whether you’re planning a one-day activity or a long-term project.
Eat pizza AND save the planet — Head on over to Jersey City for Porta’s Pizza for the Planet fundraiser. Pay what you want for the special Earth Day pie and 100 percent of the proceeds will go toward Friends of Liberty State Park. The nonprofit is dedicated to preserving Liberty Park, a beautiful area behind the Statue of Liberty and Ellis Island. A live DJ, giveaways, specialty drinks and fun crafts for kids and adults make this the perfect party for creating a cleaner earth. The party will be held 11 a.m. April 22.

Participate in Earth Week activities — Why save the Earth for just one day? Dedicate a whole week to the project with Hoboken’s Earth Week activities. The city of Hoboken is hosting a weeklong program of workshops and community-outreach initiatives. This will include lessons on tree planting, water use and farming. There will also be opportunities to dispose of your waste products such as appliances, small furniture and other electronics. Visit https://bit.ly/2qX0OJG for a full schedule of events.
Grow your own food — Go even further than one week of saving the earth. Start by dedicating your whole life. The city of Hoboken has three community gardens for you to grow your own fruits and vegetables. In addition to saving money, you’ll also stop using all of the plastic you would have used in the grocery store. Visit https://bit.ly/2HLvvfi to apply for a spot.
