Re: Green Business Programs



Karen - 

The Montana P2 Program is implementing the EcoStar Program, modeled after
King County's Enviro Stars program. It's a simple public recognition
program - they fill out an application; we review them; follow-up with a
site visit if possible to verify information on the application. Recipients
get window decals, certificates, press releases, table displays, and
nomination for the annual SBA P2 Award.

If you like, I can send an application to give you an idea of what's involved.

Contact Laurel Tomchick at King Couty for info on the Envir Stars Program
