ANJEC Recognizes Norwood for Environmental Achievement

northern_valley_earth_fair_2015The Association of NJ Environmental Commissions (ANJEC) presented one of its five prestigious Environmental Achievement Awards to the Norwood Environmental Commission, in association with the Cresskill, Old Tappan and Closter commissions, at the organization’s 42nd Annual Environmental Congress on Friday, Oct. 9, 2015.

The Environmental Commissions of Cresskill, Closter and Norwood and the Borough of Old Tappan joined forces to host a regional Northern Valley Earth Fair in 2015. By pooling resources and talents, we attracted 65+ environmental or green exhibitors, arranged for participation by local schools, live musical performances and flash dances, offered paper shredding and e-waste disposal, distributed hundreds of reusable bags and bottles, and raised money for future environmental projects and
educational activities.

Norwood participates in the annual Northern Valley Earth Fair held each April during Earth Week. For this year’s Fair location and details, go to the Northern Valley Earth Fair website at http://www.nv-earth-fair.org/ . Please join us and see what Norwood and our neighboring towns are doing to promote a sustainable lifestyle in the Northern Valley! Vendors, Food, Music, Workshops, Family-friendly Activities and Fun!
