Congratulations, Thurston Green Businesses!!!

A record number of businesses applied for a Thurston Green designation this year and the community celebrated those businesses at the Chamber’s April Forum on Wednesday, April 12 at 11:30 a.m. at the Hotel RL Olympia.

The luncheon included Earth Day remarks by Congressman Denny Heck, a keynote address by Providence St. Peter’s Keith Edgerton and a Green Business Expo.

Now in its tenth year, the Thurston Green Business program has become one of the Chamber’s most popular programs, and for good reason — businesses that take steps to be green save money while protecting and preserving resources. Saving energy and water, while reducing waste, are good steps that benefit our environment. The savings that result from conservation boost the bottom-line. The program is sponsored by the City of Lacey, the City of Olympia, the City of Tumwater, the Port of Olympia, Puget Sound Energy, Intercity Transit, Thurston Energy and Thurston Climate Action Team.

This year the following businesses were recognized:

Lady of the Lake at Offut Resort, Small Business of the Year
Apex Landscaping, Medium Business of the Year
Nisqually Red Wind Casino, Large Business of the Year
The Port of Olympia, Municipal Organization of the Year
