Sustainable Jersey is a certification program for municipalities in New Jersey that want to go green, save money and take steps to sustain their quality of life over the long term. Launched in 2009, they are a nonprofit, nonpartisan organization that provides tools, training and financial incentives to support and reward communities as they pursue sustainability programs. Millburn was awarded Bronze certification in 2010 and again in 2013, and will strive to achieve Silver status with the next certification.  For more information, go to http://www.sustainablejersey.com/

 

The Millburn Township Green Team is working in collaboration with the Green Teams of Maplewood and South Orange on a number of sustainability endeavors for the benefit of all three communities. Sustainable Jersey's 2013 Collaboration Award was presented to these Green Teams in recognition of their joint community efforts.
