Update on Edmonds
EnviroStars aims to help Washington businesses achieve environmental goals                       

enviro stars.jpgThe City of Edmonds is proud to announce that it has joined several Washington cities, counties and utilities to launch a revamped EnviroStars program, which brings together green business initiatives from around the region under one umbrella. The new EnviroStars program includes acentral web portal that allows businesses to find referrals for local sustainability services and incentives to start on a path to recognition. The program will also help small businesses connect with one another so they can learn from and support their peers.

The supercharged EnviroStars program replaces the City’s Green Business Pledge and provides a central hub for Washington businesses to receive assistance and recognition for saving energy and water, reducing waste and pollution, choosing safer products, and cutting greenhouse gas emissions.

Consumers will use the EnviroStars directory to find businesses who share their environmental values – from restaurants and grocery stores, to hotels and auto body shops, and everything in between. They can also look for the EnviroStars mark on the storefronts of recognized businesses in their community.

Businesses that engage with EnviroStars will benefit by learning to operate more efficiently, strengthening their bottom line, improving employee health, and gaining recognition for environmental leadership.

We look forward to announcing our first businesses to be recognized under the EnviroStars program in the coming months!
