Malibu, CA (PRWEB) March 14, 2014
The Malibu-Calabasas Wine & Food Festival has announced that they have been certified by the Los Angeles Green Business Program as a GREEN company. For years, festival organizer Barcelona Enterprises has taken important steps to ensure that these highly attended events have minimal impact on the environment, leaving the smallest footprint possible on the planet. By officially joining the Los Angeles Green Business Program and securing their GREEN certification, they are furthering their commitment to doing business in an environmentally responsible way.
The Los Angeles Green Business Program has a distinctive set of strict requirements that certified partners must adhere to, including but not limited to: reducing paper use, eliminating faxes, using only 100% recycled paper products, and printing with GREEN certified printers. Further efforts include recycling and composting all waste and bio-degradable materials from these often sold-out events. The Malibu-Calabasas Wine & Food Festival has also committed to using locally sourced supplies whenever possible to reduce carbon emissions and other bio-hazards from trucking.
“We have always sourced our supplies locally because one of our main missions is to bring a greater awareness of the wonderful resources that are available within our own communities. By becoming certified as a GREEN business, The Malibu-Calabasas Wine & Food Festival hopes to inspire other businesses and restaurants to do so as well,” festival organizer and Barcelona Enterprises CEO Alan Semsar said.
Long established as a charity partner in the Southern California area, Barcelona Enterprises has raised thousands of dollars for local and worldwide charities, and has a proven track record of giving big. Joining the GREEN movement is just one more step they are taking to make the world a better place for all.
