Nearly 75 Bronx businesses gathered today at the Bronx Chamber of Commerce Go Green Business Expo at the New York Botanical Gardens. With the purpose of promoting, networking and having neighboring businesses join together, many companies had tables set up offering information on their business and what they offer.

Opening statements were held by an energetic Larry Caro, President & CEO of the Bronx chamber, followed by words from the chairman, Joe Kelleher.

“The whole incentive is to get businesses to do business with each other and show that the Bronx is still in business,” said Caro.

In addition to the abundant amount of Bronx businesses present, NYC public advocate, Bill de Blasio addressed the attendees, as well as Greenpeace founder, Dr. Patrick Morton and the President of the Bronx Overall Economic Development Corporation (BOEDC), Marlene Cintron. All expressed how honored they felt to be at the event.
