Sustainable Monroe Township

Sustainable Monroe Township was formed in 2013 and is coordinating the Sustainable Jersey Certification process. It is made up of volunteer residents, called the Monroe Green Team. We have collaborated with the Monroe Township School District, the Williamstown Sunrise Rotary, the Free Library of Monroe Township and are a resource for the Municipality, the residents, and the business community. We sponsor and participate in related activities on a regional basis, and promote the efficient and responsible use of our land, water, and other natural resources. We engage in community outreach and seek more members to get involved in our efforts. Please get in touch at to join us in making Monroe Township a more sustainable community.

Sustainable Jersey, a nonprofit, nonpartisan organization that provides tools, training and financial

incentives to support communities as they pursue sustainability programs. Currently, over 406 of New

Jersey’s 565 municipalities are participating in the sustainability certification program. Sustainable

Jersey is one hundred percent voluntary and each town can choose whether it wants to get certified and

the actions it wants to do in order to achieve enough points to get certified. In 2014 the Sustainable

Jersey for Schools program will be launched in partnership with New Jersey School Boards Association

and other statewide educational organizations.

Sustainable Jersey’s partners include the New Jersey State League of Municipalities, The Sustainability

Institute at The College of New Jersey, the New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection and the

New Jersey Board of Public Utilities (BPU). Program underwriters include the Geraldine R. Dodge

Foundation and the Surdna Foundation. Our Small Grants program is underwritten by Walmart and

PSEG. Sponsors include South Jersey Gas, New Jersey Natural Gas, Church and Dwight, Covanta Energy,

Energy Solve, Terhune Orchards, Bayshore Recycling, Good Energy, EcoMatters, Spiezle Architectural

Group, Waste Management of New Jersey, Pennoni Associates, Inc., Investors Bank, Phoenix Advisors
