The Bernardsville Green Team is an all volunteer community outreach and educational
organization that supports the mission of Sustainable Jersey
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.
We strive to accomplish this by raising awareness that small individual steps can
collectively lead to significant changes. The initiatives and events we promote
seek to motivate individuals, families and businesses to change their behavior in
support of the community’s goals for sustainability.

The collaborative efforts of the Bernardsville Green Team, the Bernards High Green
Team, and the Borough of Bernardsville resulted in our community becoming a
Jersey Bronze Certified Community in November of 2010 (one of only 108 in the state).
Sustainable Jersey strives for a better tomorrow one community at a time. The program
encompasses the three equal, interrelated components of sustainability:
The program is a consensus oriented, science based, politically relevant effort
to align the interests and resources of actors from state and local, public and
private, for the common purpose of achieving a sustainable New Jersey and world.
It's easy - yet a powerful way to save money and play a part in shaping Bernardsville's
future as a sustainable community. The program is designed to raise awareness that
small individual steps can collectively lead to significant changes. Here's some
information and details on how to get started.
The Challenge is comprised of twelve attainable "green actions" which aim to motivate
individuals, families and businesses to change their behavior in support of the
community's goals for sustainability. The items focus on issues such as home energy
efficiency measures, water usage, recycling, waste reduction, transportation, local
and sustainable food, composting and environmental activities. Participants pledge
to complete five actions but are encouraged to meet as many challenges as possible.
When residents complete the challenge and return their pledge form, they will receive
a lawn sign to proudly display that acknowledges they are a GREEN CHALLENGE HOME.
The hope is this will create a buzz about town and generate more community involvement,
thus moving Bernardsville closer to achieving the Silver level certification under
the Sustainable Jersey program.
Instructions on how and where to return your form are included on the Green Challenge
Let The Challenge Begin!
To take the pledge, the first step is to review all the actions you can take. The Green Challenge Pledge Form contains a list of all actions that count towards the Challenge in addition to instructions on how and where to return your form when you have completed it.
