Get a gold star for going green

Willamette Week ad promoting certified businessesGet your workplace certified by May 1, 2018 and we’ll print your company’s name in a full-page promotion in the June 6, 2018 edition of Willamette Week.

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

It’s free!

But it will take some sweat equity — you’ll have to make sure your workplace has its operations in order:

  • Recycling bins well-labeled (with free posters).
  • Computers set to auto-sleep mode.
  • Aerators on water faucets (order some at no cost).
  • And more.

You'll need to turn in your application by early April to leave time for your verification visit. Then you're golden!
