Background: Greener JC is thrilled to announce an exciting grant opportunity titled Greening Your Business Grant. Greener JC has received funding from The Love Beauty and Planet Project to support plastic reduction efforts in the Jersey City business community.
Plastic pollution has a significant impact on our environment that requires the participation of as many as possible to help keep our Earth clean. Plastic pollution affects our marine wildlife, intensifies global warming, and pollutes the air we breathe. Greener JC is funding organizations and businesses that are determined to take initiatives toward reducing plastic pollution and fostering a cleaner and healthier environment.
Businesses small and large located in Jersey City can apply to receive funding up to $1,000 to support plastic reduction efforts in their business. Funding can support the purchase of more eco conscious items, efforts to phase out styrofoam or plastic straws, or other programs to decrease plastic use. Beginning May 4, 2022, single-use carryout bags and polystyrene foam food service products will be banned in New Jersey stores and food service businesses, so take advantage of this opportunity to get your business prepared while doing your part to make a greener Jersey City.
