Here in Mercer County, we want to encourage our residents to reduce the amount of plastics in their lives.  So we will take the month of July to share tips and information with you so that you can make good choices to protect the environment. To start, you might try visiting and take the challenge, starting with their survey. You can also check this site every day this month for tips on how to reduce plastic in your lives and information on the state of plastics in the Garden State.
