Grand Image Green
Posted by Elke / to Seattle, Behind the Scenes / on December 15, 2014

As of today, Grand Image is a proud participant in the City of Seattle's "Get on the Map!" efforts. We are now a recognized member of the Green Business program. 2015 will be our Year of Green! We are just getting started on our path towards a more environmentally sustainable and carbon neutral business model. We enlisted the help of Seattle Public Resource Venture group to steer us in the right direction.

In order to receive Seattle's Green Business Certification, we needed to make a demonstrable effort toward increased sustainability in our practices. Some of these included:

  • Completing a third party green business assessment
  • Expanding paper recycling to include Creative Department waste paper
  • Appointing a Green Champion (yours truly)

There were also a few things that we already had in place that helped us receive this recognition:

  • Low-flow 1.6 gallon toilets
  • Faucet limiters in the restrooms
  • Print Production waste recycling
  • Energy efficient lighting

We have some big changes in store for next year and we can't wait to tell you all about them soon!
