Avondale is not only growing fast, it’s also growing green.
Avondale launched a Certified Green Business Program last fall. The goal was to recognize businesses “for their investments and contributions to operate in a more environmentally responsible way through sustainable practices.”
It’s off to a good start, according to Hether Krause, manager of Avondale’s Environmental and Sustainability Program.
“The program is going well and continuing to grow,” said Krause. “We have a diverse group of businesses in the Certified Green Business Program.”
According to Krause, here are the first 13 “certified green” businesses:
• AAEC Early College High Schools
• Batteries & Bulbs
• Danny’s Avondale Truck Wash
• Farmers Insurance
• Hilton Garden Inn
• Homewood Suites by Hilton
• ISM Raceway
• King Koil
• Scale & Feather Meadery
• St. John Paul II Catholic High School
• Stotz Equipment
• We Olive
The certificate “means that your business has made a commitment to go above and beyond basic environmental requirements,” according to avondaleaz.gov.
“Businesses that join the program will have access to training and new information that will keep them up-to-date with the latest sustainability practices.
