Richmond, CA (WiredPRNews.com) Gardeners’ Guild, Inc., Richmond, California, has been acknowledged as a certified “Green Business” for the steps it has taken to conserve natural resources. In order to qualify for this program, the employee-owned company submitted its operations to a review by the Contra Costa County Green Business Coordinator to ensure that it met county standards having to do with water; energy conservation as well as waste and pollution prevention.
This recognition signifies a renewal of the certification for the landscape management firm. In fact, the company was one of the first Marin County firms to be a Certified Green Business, in 2002, when it was headquartered there. Upon moving to Richmond, Gardeners’ Guild was required to re-apply and obtain certification from Contra Costa County.
“We are proud to be recognized for our sustainable practices in Contra Costa County”, says Kevin Davis, President of Gardeners’ Guild. “Responsibility for the environment is imbedded in our corporate values. Over the last thirty years, we’ve been recognized for our recycling, reusing programs, along with our initiatives to save water and implement the least toxic practices in the landscape.”
