Green Business Certification!

The Locally Grown Weddings team is thrilled to announce our newly bestowed Green Business Certification!

It is an honor to be officially recognized by the city of San Francisco for our sustainable and green business practices.

To qualify as a green business, we have met high environmental standards that have the following  impact:

SF Green Businesses reduce the amount the CO2 they generate, thereby helping tackle the pressing problem of global climate change. Here's how:
  • Green Businesses conserve energy by using fluorescent lighting and Energy Star rated equipment
  • Green Businesses conserve water through the use of low-flow toilets and water flow restrictors. Energy is needed to deliver water, so every unit of water conserved saves several pounds of CO2
  • Green Businesses conserve natural resources by promoting public transit, biking and walking
  • Green Businesses reduce waste by recycling and composting and using materials with recycled content. The manufacture, distribution, and use of products - as well as dealing with the resulting waste - all require the use of energy, resulting in greenhouse gas emissions.
  • Green Businesses also take steps to ensure a safe and healthy workplace for their employees and customers by using less-toxic products.
Please join us! Whether you run your own business or work for a larger company, we encourage you to look into the green certification program and take steps to reducing your "footprint" at work.
