I hope you and yours enjoy the fall season in wonderful Monmouth County!

Don't Spook Mother Nature - Have a Green Halloween!

Remember when the biggest Halloween hazard was razor blades in the candy? Or so we thought. We wore devilish masks and ran around the neighborhood collecting candy in our plastic pumpkins, returning home to stuff our faces with candy until our tummies hurt. When you're a kid, ignorance is bliss. Now, we're older, greener, and wiser, and we know better. Many masks are toxic PVC and those plastic pumpkins are still sitting in landfills years later.

A few simple swaps can guard the health of the planet, your family and your wallet without sacrificing a ghoulish good time.  Click Here to Read More.

Let's Talk About Making Change - Climate Change That Is.

Do any of us really like to talk about climate change? Probably not, but talking about it is one of the most important things we can do to fight it. This new study finds that Americans rarely talk about it or hear about it in the news - no wonder we are slow to take action. 

Let's start telling people we care about this issue!   Click here to read more.
