Tips on how you can help sustain the planet!

By Janique Burke

Is environmental sustainability a foreign topic to you? Have you put any thought into how your daily actions affect the environment?

There are plenty of environmental sustainability policies and programs around the country and even in our state, such as the recent plastic bag ban, the Green Acres Program to preserve New Jersey’s conservation and recreational areas, and Sustainable Jersey, a certification and incentive program for New Jersey cities that want to go green. There are also several environmental laws and executive orders in place to help safeguard the environment and the health of humans.

communities on sustainable practices to promote healthy environments for generations to come, some individuals are unaware of the efforts that they and their families can take within their own home to do
their part. Here are a few environmental sustainability tips that Trenton Journal compiled that will not
only save money, but will also promote responsible interaction with the planet.
