Maplewood Launches Green Month


After seven years of building the largest annual public green day fair in New Jersey, the Maplewood Green Team will celebrate its eighth anniversary by engaging the community all month long with eco-educational events rather than just a one day event.

“The Maplewood Green Team is excited for the launch of Green Month. We feel the sustainability movement growing and know that our message is resonating with the community,” said Tracey Woods, chair of the Maplewood Green Team.
