About the Green Team

The Mahwah Township Council passed a resolution designating the Environmental Commission to create the 'Sustainable Mahwah' "Green Team." The Green Team's mission is to assist, advocate, and advise the township on sustainable strategies and initiatives for environmental and fiscal responsibility. 

Sustainable New Jersey

Sustainable Mahwah will pursue certification through statewide Sustainable Jersey  - a certification and incentive 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. New Jersey is the first state in the nation to have such a comprehensive sustainability program for communities.

Goals

The Sustainable Mahwah team has a goal of not only achieving early Sustainable Jersey certification but also encouraging long-term involvement of all of those interested in sustainable living and many township residents, community organizations, students, businesses

Community Involvement

Sustainable Mahwah looks forward to the long term involvement of many residents (within or outside of Mahwah). A growing involvement of interested individuals and organizations will enable Mahwah to meet and exceed the requirements of maintaining certification while more importantly, creating a higher, more economical quality of life for its community and future generations. The Sustainable Mahwah team encourages you to explore the Sustainable Jersey website, sign up to its news and discussion group at or email Sustainable Mahwah.
