Green City Force and the residents of New York City Housing Authority (NYCHA)’s Chelsea-Elliot Houses are leading the way to make a greener, greater New York City.

Love Where You Live!

This summer, Green City Force Corps Members – all of whom are young NYCHA residents – are going door-to-door in Chelsea Houses, Elliott Houses, and Chelsea Addition, installing CFL light bulbs and informing residents about how to reduce electricity consumption and help their building win the Green Challenge.

The initiative is sponsored by Google and Alcoa.

Live in Chelsea Houses, Elliott Houses, or Chelsea Addition?

Corps Members will be coming by your apartment during the times listed below, in order to:

– Install FREE energy-saving, long-lasting CFL light bulbs
– Give you tips on how to save energy and water
– Invite you to sign the Green Challenge pledge

These visits should last about 10-15 minutes.
