Earth Day at Grand Central Terminal April 24, 2009

Midday Throngs filled Vanderbilt Hall at Grand Central Terminal, and out on Vanderbilt Avenue it was equally busy...

Many people were grabbing samples of eco-friendly products such as  Sea Buckthorn hand and body cream, and all kind s of other goodies..

One of more interesting booths offered samples  of paper made from recycled elephant dung.

And then there were political pamphleteers, protesting arrests and imprisonment in Pacific Northwest of eco-activists ( prosecuted as eco- terrorists), who had done such things as freed wild horses corraled to be slaughtered.

Affair was super crowded and often bewildering, with more displays than you could ever peruse in a lunch hour...tourists, of course, had more time.
