Westfield is Getting Greener
We know it's important, but it’s not always easy being green. Environmentally-friendly changes can add big costs to small business owners’ already tight bottom line.
Westfield businesses' desire to be more eco friendly was helped along this past year by the efforts of a group of volunteer Westfield representatives and residents who work with the Mayor and Town Council, called the Green Team. They identified simple, but do-able, steps that have helped businesses succeed in being greener. Avoiding plastic packaging and utensils, using cardboard take out containers, composting and providing water refill stations are just a few of the steps retailers have made toward big changes.
Keep your eye out for reusable shopping bags and medallions awarded by the Westfield Green Team to the businesses that are making it a priority to be green.
As the Green Westfield Medallion Program grows more and more businesses are participating. Learn how small changes are making a big difference in our community. https://www.westfieldnj.gov/medallion.
