Going green program to kick off on Earth Day

-A A +A
By Carol A. Clark

Greening up Los Alamos is a focus the Los Alamos Chamber of Commerce is concentrating on as Earth Day approaches.

The chamber, the Pajarito Environmental Education Center (PEEC) and the Los Alamos County Environmental Services Division (LACESD) have teamed up to establish “Going Green.”

LACESD’s Tom Nagawiecki, Becky Shankland and additional PEEC members and the chamber’s Kevin Holsapple developed the criteria for the Going Green program and are evaluating applications from businesses and organizations.

The program recognizes local businesses making strides toward sustainable operations and practices.

Implementing Going Green practices earns businesses several thank you perks including a window decal to let customers know the establishment is doing the right things to help the environment.

The program is free to chamber members, who also receive Going Green buttons on their traffic catcher page, a link to the national Going Green network of chamber member businesses and thanks from everyone for their efforts.

“We know businesses are already doing a lot of these things and feel that it is time they are recognized for it,”  Chamber Member Services Coordinator Katy Korkos said.

“We’re hoping to roll out the program beginning on Earth Day, April 24.”
