Cheers to green business!

WW 2017 Beer Guide AdWe're celebrating our certified breweries and restaurants with a full page ad in this week's Willamette Week Beer Guide: Check it out, near the front, opposite the table of contents.

There's still time to get your name in a June WW ad!

Get your workplace certified by May 1, and we’ll print your company’s name in a full-page promotion in Willamette Week.

Your company gets good PR, and you get credit for it. Win win!

What’s it cost?

It’s free!

But it will take some sweat equity

You’ll have to make sure your workplace has its operations in good green order. But we’re here to help! 

We can come meet with you at your business, check off what’s already done, and help you tackle what’s left. Plus, we’ll give you free things to help you get there faster: recycling boxes; posters and stickers for recycling, compost and garbage; and water faucet aerators for your bathroom and kitchen sink faucets.

There are also three levels — certified, silver and gold — so you don’t have to do it all right off the bat.
