Santa Monica, CA (PRWEB) April 24, 2009
With Earth Day upon us, Healthy Spot is proud to report that it is the first pet products and services store to become "green" certified by the City of Santa Monica, the Convention and Visitors Bureau, the Chamber of Commerce, and Sustainable Works.
The Santa Monica Green Business Certification Program recognizes and certifies businesses that have taken steps to incorporate sustainable and "green" practices into their operations. As a green certified business, Healthy Spot pledges to be a leader in the business community in advancing the important goals of conserving resources, preventing pollution, and protecting the well being of the environment and pets.
Some of the steps that Healthy Spot has taken during its "greening" process include: reducing solid waste disposal, promoting and implementing office-wide recycling programs, improving energy and water efficiency, purchasing and selling eco-friendly products that are more conducive to pet health and the integrity of the environment, minimizing pollutant contributions to the Santa Monica Bay, improving indoor air quality and reducing smog formation, as well as educating the public and other businesses about green business practices.
"We are very excited about receiving the Green Business Certification. It has been our philosophy since inception to find a better way. This is the ethos we operate by and it's great to receive this recognition," said Andrew Kim, owner of Healthy Spot. "We also encourage our canine clients and their owners to establish sustainable living practices. We promote this by offering eco-friendly pet products such as foods, beds and toys and only carry biodegradable poop bags and pee pads. A greener "spot" is our goal."
