Our Mission
“Bringing people together to build a Sustainable South Plainfield”

SSP strives to continuously tap South Plainfield and the Borough's greatest resource - its people - in order to shift to a sustainable way of life. We do this through hosting educational events, networking opportunities, supporting community based task forces and acting as a general clearing house of information on sustainability news and events. We provide a structure for people at all levels to work together to pursue their passions and use their unique skills and networks in the service of a more sustainable community.

SSP is essentially a community group in that our approach to sustainability recognizes that everyone making small changes results in big differences collectively. As such, it is critical that we establish and nurture relationships with all area stakeholders, including government, schools, businesses, faith groups, other community groups and individuals from all over South Plainfield. But grassroots cannot do it alone.  Large scale change requires leadership by governments and corporations.  An educated and empowered populace can put pressure on these entities from the ground up.

Your Role:

  • Sign up for our mailing list and subscribe to this website to stay up to date on all SSP happenings.
  • Follow us on Twitter @spenvironmental and “LIKE” us on Facebook!
  • Attend one of our free or low cost community educational events.
  • Explore the "Actions towards certification" section of our website.  We have grassroots groups working hard to make our vision of a sustainable community a reality.  Figure out which task force is a good fit for your skills and passions, roll up your sleeves, contact the group leader and get to work!
  • Support our efforts with a donation, sponsor one of our educational programs or join us at one of our “community building” fund raisers.
  • Offer your time and talents to help move SSP forward as a non profit organization. We are an all-volunteer group and always need a hand with planning, communicating and running events.
  • "Coming Soon" Green Drinks “One Green Night a Month.” The event takes place the third Wednesday of EVERY month from 6-8pm at "TBA" in South Plainfield.  Stop by and hang out with folks in your community who are thinking and talking about sustainability. Green Drinks is a friendly, informal setting for networking and building the community!  SSP provides the green networking opportunity; you buy your own drinks!
