A muon telescope of the Extreme Energy Events (EEE) Project is made by 3 Multigap Resistive Plate Chambers (MRPC). The MRPCs have been fluxed so far with a standard mixture composed by 98% C$_{2}$H$_{2}$F$_{4}$ and 2% SF$_{6}$ that are Green House Gases (GHG) phasing out of production. In order to reduce GHG emissions, without affecting MRPC excellent performance,
the EEE Collaboration is currently studying alternative mixtures environmentally and economically sustainable. MRPCs performance with new gas mixtures , in terms of resolution (time and space), efficiency, tracking capability and stability are currently under investigation and will be briefly described in this contribution.
