Did you know that Plainsboro Township is one of 224 New Jersey towns that are Sustainable Jersey certified?  Plainsboro achieved Sustainable Jersey certification at the bronze level in program year 2021. Plainsboro was first recognized in 2014, and this third 3-year certification is good until 2024 – that’s ten years of demonstrated sustainability!  Certified towns are an outstanding group of municipalities that are making important contributions toward the long-term goal of a sustainable New Jersey and world.

Sustainable Jersey provides tools, training and financial incentives to support communities as they pursue sustainability programs. As New Jersey faces issues such as the climate crisis, a growing equity divide and environmental pollution, municipalities want to be a part of the solution to these challenges. Sustainable Jersey participants (municipalities and schools) have successfully implemented and documented over 20,826 sustainability actions. Sustainable Jersey has provided over $6.7 million in grants to municipalities, school districts and schools for community-based projects that create healthy and sustainable communities in New Jersey.  Sustainable Jersey is administered by The Sustainability Institute at The College of New Jersey.
