Ocean City Accepted in to the Maryland Green Registry
By Kelli Steele

The Town of Ocean City is actively working on the Sustainable Maryland Certified application. Sustainable Maryland is a certification program for municipalities in Maryland that want to go green, save money and take steps to sustain their quality of life over the long term.

The Town will be submitting their application this month and will hear if accepted by the fall 2016. One of the steps that earn points for the Town is to join the Maryland Green Registry. This is a program that is closely tied to the Sustainable Maryland Certified. The Maryland Green Registry is a voluntary program offering tips and resources for greening your facility as well as the opportunity to share your environmental successes with others.

The Town of Ocean City “Green Team” decided to lead by example and submit application for Ocean City to join the Maryland Green Registry. Green Team member Gail Blazer stated that “We get points for joining the program and also for promoting the program. For every business that joins, the Town gets Sustainable Maryland Certified Program points. We felt that we should lead by example and join. It is hoped that the publicity can be used to market the program to all businesses in the town.”
