On Thursday, March 23, County Manager Mark McCauley presented awards to six businesses and community members for their commitment to reduce harmful environmental impacts, educate others and give back to the community. We recognized 3 businesses.
 
The business winners are:
 
Heaven's Best Carpet Cleaning - Green Business Product/Service Award
By providing carpet cleaning services without generating dirty wastewater, Heaven's Best conserves resources and protects our waterways from potential pollution.
 
Simply Thyme Catering - Green Business Award (25 or fewer employees)
Simply Thyme offsets all its electricity use through Clark Public Utilities' Green Lights program, purchases locally produced food when possible, and diverts food scraps from the landfill.
 
Cadet - Green Business Award (more than 25 employees)
Cadet recently eliminated 90 percent of incoming block foam packaging and installed energy-saving motion sensors throughout the building. It also protects stormwater by filtering roof runoff in a Grattix box.
