Applications to become a Thurston Green Business are now open at the Thurston County Chamber.

Thurston Green Businesses are recognized by the Chamber for taking steps to steward the environment, such as saving water, reducing waste, conserving energy, or buying or selling green. It’s free for a company within the county to apply to become a Thurston Green Business, with applications open through March 15.

If approved, all businesses receive recognition at the Thurston Chamber Green Business Forum April 12, 2017, and receive a Thurston Green window cling. In addition, the Thurston Green committee selects winners in the small, medium and large green business categories, and those businesses receive special recognition at the event.

Thurston Green Business is a partnership between the City of Olympia, the City of Lacey, the City of Tumwater, Thurston County and the Thurston County Chamber.
