Commerce Lexington recently held its annual Salute to Small Business Awards. One of the 8 awards presented, the Green Initiative Award, honors small businesses that have prioritized the implementation of sustainable practices. According to the official criteria, demonstrated practices must include; “written policies, goals and metrics for green practices, provision or use of alternative energy and/or energy efficient products or services, or produce or manufacture a green product or service.”
This year’s Green Initiative Award was presented to Green Check Pilot Business, Bullhorn Creative. Some of the initiatives that were highlighted at the ceremony include Bullhorn’s offering of a free bike to new employees, the composting of food waste, use of recycled office materials, and the conveniently located bike parking that is also made of recycled bike wheel frames.
