Eco Business

During 2010, while we were pruning plants, raking beds, and cleaning up leaves, we were also multi-tasking on a second very important mission.  In November, we were finally rewarded with the official recognition of our efforts to be responsible environmental stewards.  We are now officially Eco-Business Certified, which is a rigorous program combining the efforts several agencies including the Pollution Prevention Outreach Team, and the Environmental Protection Agency, to recognize landscape companies reaching the highest standards in environmental protection in the Portland Metro Area.

When we first started into the process, we were surprised that we were so close to accomplishing it before even contacting the certification team!  The largest, and final, hurdle was the installation of a water recycling station that captures and reuses all of the wash-water at our facility.   That saves us 400 gallons of water on a typical day!
