Do you have a business that practices Environmental Awareness? We back all Ecologically Sustainable Businesses by allowing the use of our Trademarked Logo(s) on their marketing materials, business window and more. We believe in rewarding businesses for doing the right thing for the environment, and we are here to back them in that cause. The greening of businesses is a great thing for the environment and for the world’s carbon footprint. We can help you create a "Green" strategy for your business. After filling out your form submission, we will review it and send you our Sustainable Business Practice Form upon approval.
How to get started on becoming an Sustainable Business/Restaurant:
1. Contact your current distributors and ask about environmentally friendly alternatives to styrofoam & plastics. Look for products that use recycled paper/cardboard, recycled plastic(s), corn/plant based paper/plastics & biodegradable products.
2. Educate your employees about how to properly dispose of toxic trash, recycle papers/plastics. This process is ongoing and requires constant learning and revisions.
3. Teach employees how to follow three R’s: reduce, reuse and recycle.
4. Create a plan to use safe storm water practices/cleaning products when cleaning the exterior of your facility, including maintaining your dumpsters.
5. Green up your toilets. Change out your old toilets for Water Conserving Toilets! Replacing an older model with a high-efficiency, EPA water saving, certified toilet, will reduce water consumption and lower your costs. Visit http://www.epa.gov/WaterSense/products/toilets.html for more info.
6. Build your green business reputation by practicing the above items and placing Drains to Ocean Approved Business Icon/Logo on your marketing materials for improved business visibility in the public eye.
