City Pulse

By Beauty News Staff


I wouldn’t exactly call myself the “outdoorsy” type of lass. I’m a Girl Scout dropout, I do prét a porter, not port-a-potty, and my idea of camping involves an air mattress and velour sleep mask. But, my beauty queens, I do respect my Mother (Earth, that is) and know that we should all do our part in making sure she’s kept so fresh and so clean-clean. For all of you divas out there reading this, now is your chance to roll up the sleeves of your Pucci tunic and show off your green side on Earth Day.

The New York-New Jersey Trail Conference is managing a major rehabilitation effort known as the Bear Mountain Trail Project and is looking for volunteers to help improve the conditions of trails and protect the mountain’s ecology. On April 22 (Earth Day) the NY-NJ TC is hosting a Women’s Work Trip from 9-4 (they even help with the transportation). Now don’t get your Le Perla’s in a bunch, peaches. This project does involve some physical labor on your part but happens to be a really fun way to spend the day (and you can skip a spin class). If you happen to get really tree-hugger on us, you can join a weekly volunteer program and really do some good for this amazing organization.

Meeting new peeps, contributing to the beauty of our planet, and getting a workout are no-brainers. Plus being green is so 2007. You never know, you may even meet one of those sexy Paul Bunyan types – if you’re into that sorta thing. For more information, contact Heidi Adami, Volunteer Coordinator, at: (201) 512-9348 x26 or
