If it wasn’t enough to three-peat our Marin IJ Best Caterer award this year, our streak continues in another area close to our hearts. For the third time we have earned certification as a Marin Green Business. We have been maintaining this certification for over a decade and it still feels great to get the official word that our re-certification has been approved.
The Marin Green Business Program, as stated on their website, is a voluntary partnership among business leaders, government agencies and non-profit organizations. The program recognizes and promotes businesses that:
· Demonstrate continuous compliance with applicable environmental regulations
· Conserve energy, water, and other materials
· Implement sound environmental practices that prevent pollution and waste generation
· Share environmentally responsible practices with other businesses in our community
We were originally certified in August 2008, and at that time we were the first catering company in Marin to be Green Certified. Then, in May 2015, when we built a new kitchen and office space on Kerner Blvd, we were re-certified. To our surprise at that time, we were still the only caterer in Marin to be a Green Business.
Finally, in 2019, several other caterers in Marin have joined this important movement and completed the Green Business certification process. We are happy to know that others in our field have the same passion and compassion towards our planet. Welcome to the club! The more the merrier.
