Hoboken Green Businesses

The Hoboken Green Team recognizes that local businesses play an important role in the sustainability and environmental responsibility of our City. We aim to build a thriving, active community of like-minded individuals and businesses committed to progressive, responsible environmental values; a community dedicated to the goals of improving and protecting our city, our residents, our businesses and our planet.

Does your business…

  • Refrain from giving out plastic or paper bags, unless asked?
  • Recycle "uncommon" items such as water filters or cooking oil?
  • Use efficient light bulbs, such as LED?
  • Buy in bulk with minimal packaging?
  • Participate in environmental causes (fairs, cleanups, green foundations, etc.)?
  • Or participate in anything else to help our community and the Earth?

If so, your business may be ready to take the Hoboken Green Business Pledge!

Why become a Hoboken Green Business?  Hoboken Green Businesses will receive a Hoboken Green Business sticker to display at their storefront; a digital version of the Hoboken Green Business sticker to post on their website; recognition as a Hoboken Green Business at the 2018 Hoboken Green Fair; a press release that will be distributed via the City Nixle emails, website, and social media; a “Green Business Spotlight” on the Hoboken Green Team Instagram page; a free space at the 2018 Hoboken Green Fair; and recognition as a Hoboken Green Business on the Hoboken website.
