Each year, the City of Modesto recognizes local businesses and organizations for their waste reduction efforts, innovations in recycling and ongoing efforts to make their business more green and sustainable. This year’s applicant’s challenged themselves not only to be “greener”, but to incorporate the reduce-reuse-recycle lifestyle each and every day.
The winners for their commitment in 2012 to both the environment and the community we live, work and play in are:
- Boyett Petroleum
- Center for Human Services
- Community Business College
- Community Hospice – Hope Chest Thrift Stores
- DoubleTree By Hilton Modesto
- Habitat For Humanity – ReStore
- Memorial Medical Center
- Modesto Junk Company
- United Cerebral Palsy of Stanislaus County
Together, these organizations have reduced energy through innovation, repurposed items for resale and donation, recycled materials for future use, created jobs and brought awareness that we are all responsible for doing our part as we continue to move forward to being “green” and creating a sustainable community for future generations.
“What we do today, right now, will have an accumulated effect on all of our tomorrows.”
— Alexandra Stoddard
Thank you to the local businesses doing their part to help ensure the tomorrows of our community!
