Formed in 2013 to better coordinate the various green teams and sustainability organizations around Mercer County, the Coalition works to promote a regional and collaborative approach to sustainability initiatives. Environmental issues know no regional boundaries. From our air and water quality, to transportation, to trash and recycling, these issues are common to all of the municipalities within a region. It simply makes sense to promote sustainability regionally and to tackle issues together. By uniting together coalition members can become greater than the sum of their individual parts.
