Chamber to Award Green Business of the Year in Wayne County


Honesdale, PA – The Wayne County Chamber of Commerce, in cooperation with SEEDS (Sustainable Energy Education and Development Support) and their ‘Wayne Business Conserve!’ recognition program, plans to honor a Wayne County business for their sustainable business practices, which can include: energy conservation, renewable power, transportation, water conservation, purchasing/waste prevention, and recycling/composting.

Annual recognition of a Green Business of the Year is our way to appreciate businesses for making this county a more sustainable place to live and work.  Any Wayne County business that has adopted sustainable business practices may nominate themselves or be nominated by someone else. The 1st Annual Green Business of the Year Award will be presented at the Chamber’s Community Awards Dinner on October 6, 2011.
