Why Green Your Business? Because it Saves You Money.

Make your Mesa business greener and save money, too! The City of Mesa is working in partnership with Local First Arizona (LFA) to help local businesses earn a 'Green Business Certification'. The process includes a consultation and site visit from LFA's sustainability team to help develop strategies to reduce a company's environmental impact, save money, and to stand out in the marketplace for eco-conscious consumers.

To participate, businesses answer a checklist of questions focusing on waste diversion, energy consumption, water conservation, pollution prevention, wastewater management, transportation emissions, and creating a sustainability culture in the workplace. A custom sustainability plan is developed  and ongoing assistance from the LFA team is available to  help participants reach their goals.

Stardust Building Supplies was recently awarded their Green Business Certification. Watch the video to hear from CEO Karen Jayne about how this process helped her save money and streamline her business.

If you are interested in learning more about how your Mesa business can become green certified, please visit Mesa's Green Business page, or contact Nick Shivka, Senior Sustainability Program Manager with Local First Arizona, at 602-956-0909 ext. 25 or by email at
