DRG3 Recognizes Green Businesses
On Wednesday, May 29, 2013, Dayton Regional Green 3 (DRG3) recognized 69 local businesses from Montgomery and surrounding Counties that have taken voluntary steps to protect, preserve, and improve the environment. Several of these businesses have certified multiple locations leading to a total of 134 facilities receiving DRG3 Green Business Certification since May, 2012 bringing the number of certified businesses to date close to 200.

The Green Business Certification Program is a voluntary program designed to help businesses take basic green measures to reduce their ecological footprint, reduce their energy and resource use, and save money in the process. Program emphasis is on day to day operations and policies; making small changes to everyday routines and using effective strategies to save on commercial energy and resources that could potentially save businesses thousands of dollars a year.

In January, DRG3 and its partners announced the Green500 Challenge, a plan to engage 500 area businesses and organizations in the DRG3 Green Business Certification Program by the end of 2013.

Today’s event was held in the Oregon District at Salar Restaurant & Lounge, 410 E. Fifth Street, in Dayton.  Photos are available at:  https://www.facebook.com/DaytonRegionalGreen3
