Green Businesses

We encourage all businesses to strive to be as environmentally friendly as possible. Simple steps like implementing a recycling program or switching from disposable to reusable plastics can provide many benefits to the environment. These benefits can include waste reduction, energy conservation, water conservation, pollution prevention, and improved indoor air quality.

Miami- Dade County has a green businesses program that can provide you with a certification to prove that your business is sustainable. This program is based in Miami Florida and the list of participants includes dental practices, office/retail, garment/clothing facilities, and restaurants. Learn more and join today!
