Businesses of all sizes are participating in the local Green Business Alliance.  Launched with a kickoff certification workshop on Tuesday, the Alliance still has room for interested business owners to enter.  The challenge is to implement more sustainability practices in your daily routine, while keeping an eye on the bottom line.

The Sierra Club’s Christine Favilla says the goal of Tuesday’s event was certifying the participating businesses as green.
