BEE AND THE COMMUNITY

BEE is an advocacy and educational organization that is creating a new generation of green-minded people. 


Brooklyn Endeavor Experience, Inc.
(BEE) seeks to improve the quality of the Brooklyn community by partnering with local businesses, community leaders and neighbors to create a clean and safe place to live and work. We are one of eight community partners on the Historic Community Benefits Agreement (CBA) for the Atlantic Yards Project, a $4 billion development including residential and commercial properties and a sports arena. WE ARE READY to create Green Jobs through the CBA either through current partnerships such as developers like Forest City Ratner Companies (FCRC), or through potential partnerships like the New York State Energy Research and Development Authority (NYSERDA) and we welcome others.

Tips for Improving Air Quality

 
 

Tips for Improving Air Quality


Stay away from smoke.

Give up smoking, discourage smoking in your home, ask smokers to smoke outdoors or ventilate rooms in which smoking is taking place.

Support measures to strengthen air quality control in your community.
Encourage car pooling, mass transit, and cleaner manufacturing processes.

Plant a tree.
Protecting and planting trees will help create natural air filters in our cities and neighborhoods.

Drive a fuel efficient vehicle, walk or bicycle.

Your Child's Health

According to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, children, far more than adults, have an increased susceptibility to the environmental hazards that wreak havoc on human health. The National Academy of Sciences has also concluded that children need far greater protection from many environmental threats than adults. More than 70,000 new chemical compounds have been introduced in our environment over the past forty years; whether these compounds correlate or not, childhood cancers are up 15% since 1973.
