RED BANK, NJ: The borough of Red Bank has kicked off a program to formally recognize local companies that make significant efforts to increase the sustainability of their business procedures.

Based on the criteria from the New Jersey Sustainable Business Registry (NJSBR), the Red Bank Green Business Recognition Program (GBRP), encourages local businesses to enact sustainable initiatives at a level meriting both local and state recognition.

“While we know that our local small businesses have been significantly impacted by COVID, we believe that it is still a critical time for businesses and households alike to take action toward sustainable goals. Current and future generations of Red Bank residents and visitors will prefer to patronize businesses that uphold these values, said Kristina Bonatakis, Red Bank resident and a member of the Red Bank Green Team since 2017, Environmental Commission since 2018, and Planning Board since 2020.
