The St. Louis Green Business Challenge is underway for 2013.  The challenge is a collaboration of businesses of all sizes around the St. Louis area coming together to make sustainability a priority.  Among the goals are energy & water conservation, waste removal and recycling, green team establishment, indoor environmental quality, and transportation alternatives.

Nate Keener, Director of Sustainability at Lewis & Clark Community College in Godfrey, says he has brought back some good ideas after networking with others at the kickoff meetings.

Keener comments

The next event will be the Earth Day Symposium - a two-day training and networking program for local government staff, officials and the professional community to provide continuing education in a specific topic, usually focusing on water quality and storm-water management.  For more information, follow the link provided below.
