Family Christian Counseling Center would like to announce that we have just been recognized by the City of Phoenix as a “Green Business” leader. The City of Phoenix Green Business Program recognizes and promotes businesses that volunteer to operate in a more environmentally responsible manner through waste diversion.
The goal for this program is for businesses to agree to a three-year commitment to offer recycling services, and to properly separate out their recyclables and trash. The City of Phoenix website states: “The program can bring sustainability, waste diversion and resource efficiency awareness to the forefront of businesses, as well as to encourage their employees and customers to lead a more sustainable lifestyle”.
A few of the businesses that have been certified by the city are: a) Whole Foods, b) Goodwill and c) Emery Riddle Aeronautical University. We are happy to join such a committed group of business leaders. Edie Moore has been our leader in this effort for a long time and we thank her for all her encouragement in this area, we could not have done it without her. Because we are small our part is not big but I am a believer in every bit counts. Here are a few quotes about recycling:
“There is no such thing as ‘away’, when we throw anything away it must go somewhere.”
“If you want adults to recycle, just tell their kids the importance of recycling and they will be all over it.”
“Recycle the present, save the future.”
