Environmental stewardship refers to responsible use and protection of the natural environment through conservation and sustainable practices.
The WBA is interested in identifying and recognizing the sustainable practices of its local business members.
We think it’s important that the broader community understand not only that business owners and leaders in Whatcom County care about our environment, but also the practical steps they are taking to preserve and protect it.
For example, on a WBA industry tour at Perry Pallet, Inc. in June, Marc Perry detailed for us their zero-waste philosophy in pallet production and re-purposing pallets. If a pallet cannot be repaired, they use the wood to make landscape mulch or sawdust for farm bedding.
We would like to highlight your sustainable business practices in an upcoming issue of Business Pulse Magazine and potentially in a video we will be producing later this summer.
Please click the link below and answer a few short questions if you are willing to share your story or know of another business that may be willing to share theirs.
Thanks in advance for your participation.
