NYC s Green Maps
Green Apple Map: engaging NewYorkers and sparking a
global movement Think global, map local!
NewYork City always had a few green spots, local food and good ways to
get around, but they were not part of people s perception of the city
The original Green Apple Map of NYC in 1992 helped people see and
connect with the city, its environment and sustainable living resources
First Editions & Tour
In 1995, the idea of connecting many local Green Map projects with
a global iconography took shape, and the movement began to spread

Green Map NYC Overview 2011
Partnerships in NYC
LoMap is a youth view of Lower Manhattan – 20 schools and clubs
contributed sites
Our 2006 edition highlighted energy – reasons to change now,
everyday and easy ways to reduce, renewables and climate change
We wanted to create a simple map next, on one topic. Composting is
the most efficient, restorative way to reduce waste and so, we
mapped it in partnership with Lower East Side Ecology Center
The Compost Green Map of Manhattan includes where to compost,
how to compost, trainings, websites and more
• The Compost Green Map of Manhattan includes where to compost,
how to compost, trainings, websites and more
Funded by Greenacre Foundation, this edition could only include
Manhattan. It’s proven its value helping to double and triple the
dropoffs.We have published 3 printed editions
Printing was ab
Design was started by intern,
completed by professional,
took longer and more $ than
expected.
Printing costs about 25 cents
per map at Brooklyn’s Rolling
Press.
Distribution at events,
Greenmarkets, etc was low-
cost.
We have just a few copies
left and no plan to reprint at
this time
We now have an interactive citywide Compost Green at
OpenGreenMap.org/compostnyc
Even with a digital map, we
can involve diverse
community members, such
as Grow Together attendees,
who added 22 sites to a big
printout!
