Little Silver is joining 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. We are creating a Green Team that will guide us in the process and we are encouraging all residents to participate by becoming more energy efficient, reducing their carbon footprint, helping us develop sustainable land use and water conservation practices, and saving money in the process.
Explore the real meaning of sustainability and see how your lifestyle choice can have a huge impact on Earth. We will be asking you to join the Green Challenge in the future.
