NY/NJ Baykeeper fights for access to fishable, swimmable, clean waterways across the NY-NJ Harbor Estuary.
NY/NJ Baykeeper continues to be at the forefront of many environmental advocacy and legal campaigns.
The NY-NJ Harbor Estuary, also known as the Hudson-Raritan Estuary, is a system of waterways and habitats that form one of the most intricate natural harbors in the world. Since 1989, NY/NJ Baykeeper has worked to protect, preserve and restore the environment of the most urban estuary on Earth.

Store-bought Halloween costume are often made from non-recyclable petro-chemical based plastic and synthetic fibers.

Avoid these toxic Halloween costumes and go for a green Halloween costume made of natural fabrics and materials.
