Pitt Meadows looking for eco-conscious companies

Green awards

It’s time to think about going green in Pitt Meadows again, with the second Green Star Business Awards now taking nominations.

The City of Pitt Meadows offers the awards to local businesses in three categories, (separated for businesses that have less than 10 employees and those with more.)

•  Most Innovative Green Solution

• Most Integrated Green Solutions throughout your business

• Most Awareness through education/advertising/sharing.

Winners in each category will get a Green Star Business Award, a mention in a news release from the city, and will be noted on their website.

Laurie Darcus, legislative services director, said companies often find they save money by going green. “There are so many ways to achieve savings.”

Last year’s winners:

• Suddwick Homes;

• Curves;

• Koha (the Gift) Montessori Children’s House;

• Meadows Landscape Ltd.;

• Tranzeo Wireless Tech.;

• Ecowest Renovations;

• Becker and Company Lawyers.

Forms are available online at www.pittmeadows.bc.ca or copies can be picked up at Pitt Meadows City Hall, Pitt Meadows Economic Development Office, Pitt Meadows Library and Pitt Meadows Family Recreation Centre. Deadline is Jan 13.
