We will share the secrets to sustainable success from local businesses and organizations in our own backyard. We invite you to join us and share your stories of success too. Your company may be in our next post!
Green leaders – You can become one too!
These companies and organizations initiated green practices when green practices were not popular from a consumer standpoint, adopting them was more expensive and manufacturing and commodities presented unique challenges. But, they did it because they knew it was the right thing to do! We are fortunate to work with and learn from these clients who are green leaders like:
- Clark County and their Planet Clark Program, Emerald House Project, and Blueprint Program for building officials
- Quail Homes, a green leader and builder of zero energy ready homes, and a sponsor of the Clark County Emerald House Project
- Troy Johns of Urban NW Homes who built the first net zero energy development west of the Mississippi and resides on the Green Building Council in Clark County.
- O’Ryan Industries who manufactures LED lighting, saving organizations thousands of dollars every month on energy costs and cutting energy consumption by nearly 50%!
Let’s grow this list together!
Portland and Vancouver businesses both attend the Clark County Green Business program. January 19th, I met representatives from Frito Lay, BioKleen and Simply Thyme Catering and was amazed at the steps they are taking. Your company can to register your business, get a green assessment, and be recognized and certified for adopting green practices. Visit Clark County Green Business to learn more about the program and sign up to attend their free breakfast meeting every month! Marketing EQ will provide updates and report on these gatherings in our blog too.
