SustainableEHC, Egg Harbor City's green team, works to preserve the environment, encourage residents to adopt sustainable practices in the home and support local business, industry and farming. The green team is committed protecting the city's natural resources through community involvement in projects that promote energy efficiency, conservation, environmental education and the implementation of sustainable practices in government, business and in the home.
Current projects include the third annual Egg Harbor City Farmers Market being held at Butterhof's Shady Brook Farm, 5800 White Horse Pike; an anti-idling campaign to educate the public about reducing carbon emissions, which can worsen asthma, allergies and chronic lung diseases; and a tree-planting project to replace 109 trees lost in the derecho of July 2012.
