FGC Sustainability Pledge

Friends of Green Communities (FGC) is committed to reducing the impact the population has on the environment through its operational and community-wide initiatives.

To become a truly sustainable community, FGC needs help from you — the residents, businesses, schools and community partners.

In taking the FGC Sustainability Pledge, you can make a personal commitment to sustainable living by incorporating tips into your everyday routine.

Trees improve air quality by producing oxygen, and trapping dust, pollen and other pollutants. They also store carbon, offsetting harmful by-products of fossil-fuel burning.
