The Sustainable Brick Committee was formed by Mayor Ducey and the Township Council to focus attention on “Green” issues in Brick Township.
The mission of the Sustainable Brick Committee is to advise the Township Council on ways to improve municipal operations with green initiatives which are economically and environmentally sound through research and evaluation.
The goals and objectives are as follows:
- Collaborate with township employees, service providers and other governmental agencies to share resource information and ideas consistent with the mission of the advisory committee.
- Encourage participation of all employees to solicit ideas on green initiatives.
- Research and analyze green initiatives which make practical environmental and financial sense.
- Develop strategies for sustainable green initiatives in municipal operations.

Green Tip-Outdoor holiday lights that are the older incandescent mini bulbs use roughly 80 watts for every 200 bulbs. The newer, LED bulbs would draw about 14 watts for the same 200 bulbs. A 60-watt light bulb used in a lamp or ceiling fixture, six hours per day, will cost you about $19/yr to run. The same bulb in LED only draws 8 watts, or about $2.10/year. Saving $17/year doesn’t sound like that big of a deal… but the average U.S. household has over 45 light bulbs. That’s an average of almost $800/year… EVERY YEAR! Not even taking into account that LED bulbs last up to 10 times longer than incandescent bulbs. And we’re not just talking about saving money in your home or business. According to ENERGY.GOV, use of LED lighting has the greatest potential impact on energy savings in the United States. By 2027, LEDs could save about 348 TWh of electricity: This is the equivalent annual electrical output of 44 large electric power plants (1000 megawatts each), and a total savings of more than $30 billion at today’s electricity prices.
