Mama's Day!

Another Bite!

Aiming for a favorable result this show-Mom-the-love day? It'll go well if you hand over a bunch of roseshandmade by the teens from the Lower East Side Girls Club. Sure, these crafty recycled-newspaper roses might not smell as good, but hey, unlike conventional buds, they're "grown" locally (sans pesticides, natch), and they'll last a really, really long time. And as luck would have it, all proceeds support the LESGC

Why Care?

Real, conventionally grown flowers use 1.2 billion pounds of polluting pesticides each year just in the United States - fakes reduce the need for more of 'em.

Wana Try?

Recycled Newspaper Roses available at La Tiendita,Essex Street MarketBooth 13, 120 Essex St. (212-982-1633). Recycled Newspaper Roses, $3 each.
