🌎Sustainability & Palm Beach Gardens

Updated: Jul 1

Earth Day is every day here in Palm Beach Gardens♻️.

Whether you are a lifelong resident of our Tree City, as I am, or a newcomer, you will undoubtedly observe that we have safeguarded 50% of our City as green space protected areas.

One of the reasons I decided to run for office in my hometown was to ensure that the 'gardens' remain an integral part of Palm Beach Gardens. Our City and its staff have wholeheartedly adopted the integration of eco-friendly practices to work towards the vision of a sustainable Palm Beach Gardens. This includes initiatives such as establishing a butterfly habitat, using LED lights, implementing HVAC technology, harnessing solar power, increasing tree coverage, promoting electric vehicles, and more. The City Council of Palm Beach Gardens has approved Resolutions 14 and 69, which ban the utilization of Styrofoam items, balloons, confetti, and glitter on City premises and during City functions.



You can read descriptive and inspiring information about some of our sustainability efforts on our website and in Signature City magazine!
