Speaking of sustainability, people are gearing up for the Climate March Sunday in New York. More than 100,000 people are expected to fill the streets for the event and fill the air with bells, whistles and noisemakers at 1 p.m. to sound the alarm on climate change.  The march starts at 11:30 a.m. at Columbus Circle and ends at 11th Avenue and 34th Street, where participants can join a party until 5 p.m. Similar events will take place in more than 150 countries. The United Nations Climate Summit will take place in New York on Sept. 23.
