The EnviroStars green business program assists with all aspects of sustainable business operations, including recycling and waste reduction, stormwater, energy use, water conservation, transportation and hazardous waste. It is led by a coalition of Washington utilities, cities and counties, including Kirkland, Bellevue, Redmond, and Seattle, and advised by a diverse volunteer business committee.
Consumers can find local green businesses to support on the EnviroStars.org directory or using the EnviroStars app (in development).
