In 2002 EAB changed its name and its vision. Its new name became EAB Living Green. EAB became a service club dedicated to promoting a safe and healthy environment and helping our community to live green. A new website was created to provide easy access to credible information to help citizens become active participants in community activities and government policies that impact our environment.
