NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — Part of Times Square was turned into environmental central Sunday for EcoFest.
Organized by the West Side Cultural Center, it’s designed to educate people on ways to bring about environmental change.
A major focus is conservation of natural resources, and alternative energy technology.
EcoFest has been held in various venues across New York City, and this was the second year in a row for Times Square.
“We’re thrilled to be in Times Square. We reach thousands of people that we wouldn’t ordinarily reach, which is what’s wonderful about being in Times Square,” said EcoFest producer Nancy Callahan.
Different types of alternative energy vehicles were also on display, including prototypes of solar cars.
