NYC 'Eco Nightclub' Gets Down for Earth Day

Modern mentality might tell us that it’s cool to reject anything trendy, but when the trend is being eco-friendly, it’s tough not to support.

Greenhouse nightclub takes being green-chic to a new level. The two story, 6,000 square foot New York City nightclub was the first hotspot of its kind to seek LEED certification, a buzzworthy status that led Mary Kate Olsen, Colin Farrell and, perhaps along more environmental lines, Al Gore, taking notice, according to the club.

Now, Greenhouse is giving back for Earth Week. Each night, the club will benefit a new environmental or health-based charity, including  Cans for a Cure, Prospect Park Alliance, Global Green, Green Festival, Plant a Billion Trees and more for “Greenhouse Gives Back,” where NYC bar hoppers can relax on couches produced from recycled materials and be assured that a portion of the proceeds will benefit the night’s respective charity. The club also regularly hosts a once-monthly “Greenhouse Gives Back” event, but they’re amping it up for Earth Week 2012.

Hit the Lights: Earth Day, Then and Now: Energy

“As an eco- friendly nightclub, it’s important that we stick by our motto of living a greener life by supporting Earth Week, Earth Day, Earth Festival, and charities that concentrate on an eco-friendly lifestyle,” says Greenhouse co-owner Barry Mullineaux in a release.

The nightclub will also be the after party home of the Green Festival NYC on Saturday, April 21, following the full day of environmental seminars and discussions.
