Green Your Community

There are lots of ways a green business can create impact in its communities – directly related to its core business or springing from the passions of staff. A business can initiate its own program, partner with other communities groups and businesses, or bring added support to a well-established effort.

Green Business Certification provides steps for businesses that want to engage employees in such efforts (see categories such as Conserving Resources, Recycling, and Minimizing Waste or Supporting Your Community). The stories included here highlight possibilities and, hopefully, inspire creativity.
