Committee for a Green Hoboken announces…

Welcome to the QLC & CGH Newsletter.
Interested in going green? Or saving some green? Either way, the Quality of Life Coalition’s Committee for a Green Hoboken welcomes you to our new monthly newsletter. QLC’s CGH is a group of local volunteers working on projects that will help our neighbors, local businesses and the city of Hoboken reduce our carbon footprint and create a more sustainable community.

Each month, we’ll update you on upcoming events where you can learn more about sustainability, or meet fellow Hobokenites interested in exchanging ideas about going green. We’ll keep you informed about what the city and local businesses are doing to reduce CO2 output, and ways you can reduce your own carbon footprint. Your input and involvement are welcome, just email us at cgh@qlchoboken.org, or visit our website, www.qlchoboken.org.
