What is a Green Business Partner?
Green Business Partners put environmental best practices into action in three categories:
- Reduce Waste
- Efficient Practices
The basic commitment for all partners is to maintain their areas free of litter and to reduce future litter by controlling sources, like ensuring trash cans and dumpsters remain closed. Beyond this initial commitment, many of our partners adopt multiple sustainable practices such as: reducing landfill waste; increasing recycling; practicing water conservation; reducing energy consumption; choosing reusable or compostable packaging; and offering reusable shopping bags; to name a few.
What commitments do Green Business Partners Make?
Again, all partners must make the commitment to keep their properties and surrounding areas free from litter. Commonly, partners educate their employees about litter control and regularly ensure the surrounding area is litter-free. Partners are encouraged to participate in other green activities.
