In an effort to reduce our environmental impact, the Town of Los Gatos adopted Green Monday on December 17, 2019. Green Monday require all meals served at Town facilities, council meetings, and events held on Mondays be completely free of animal products. Green Monday is both a day and a national organization, with a goal to encourage communities to make healthier choices for both themselves and the planet. Plant-based Advocates is a local Los Gatos grassroots group looking to mitigate climate change through encouraging a plant-based diet.

PACE programs allow property owners in the Town of Los Gatos to finance the installation of energy and water improvements on their home or business and pay the amount back as a line item on their property tax bill.
