Each month, Gwinnett Clean & Beautiful will shine the spotlight on one worthy business that serves as a shining example of environmental stewardship within our community. A clean, beautiful and thriving community is a benefit to all of us. As individuals, we get to enjoy the natural splendor and health benefits of clean air and water. As businesses, a clean and beautiful environment – free of graffiti on our walls and litter on our streets – lends itself to a healthy economy, as more and more people are drawn to the area.
Some of the ways a business can stand-out as an environmental steward include:
- Expand or launch a recycling program at work and track your results
- Conserve water
- Buy green when purchasing or replacing products or equipment
- Use LED or compact fluorescent lighting
- Take ownership of the area that surrounds your place of business by hiring a landscape company or scheduling volunteers from the office to come in on weekends for planting parties or litter pick up days
- Adopt-a-Road near your business and ensure that it stays litter-free by regularly scheduling volunteers from around the office to police the area
- Report graffiti near your place of business
- Keep loading docks clean and check dumpsters every day to make sure they are securely closed
- Become part of a business reuse network like Georgia Industrial Materials Exchange
- Develop innovative new ways for your business to have a positive impact on the environment through cleaner manufacturing or building practices, reuse of materials or recycled products, and more!
