Mother Earth is not just to be cherished, protected, and loved but also celebrated for the natural abundance she gifts us. Like Valentine’s Day, Earth Day is a reminder of how we can dedicate our time, energy, and resources to save the planet that nurtures and protects us. We also need to take a stand and act on resolving climatic and environmental issues. 

Carmel Limos New York City dedicates to ensuring that we uphold go-green initiatives and leave a minimum or zero carbon footprint in the cities we operate. We perform regular emission checks on all our vehicles for minimum environmental impact. In addition, we’re slowly moving towards electric vehicles to enable ‘clean and green’ commutes in the Big Apple.

April 22, 2023, is Earth Day, which calls for eco-consciousness and green proactiveness. The eco-celebration begins in New York City and expands to over 190 countries globally. Nearly 1 billion people take place in Earth Day-related actions each year. From parties, exhibitions, parades, environmental launch events, and clean-ups to peaceful protests, rallies, and demonstrations, active participation in New York City symbolizes how we appreciate and care for our planet. 

Carmel Limos NYC is at your service during these events, and we promise to follow safe emission protocols and go-green safety rules when we serve you. 

This blog discusses the significant events happening in the city so you can participate and do your bit to Save the Planet.
