Green Your Business

If you run a local business, you may find going sustainable helps you draw customers and save money. If you own a home or building, or are involved in new building, check out our information on green development.

All Businesses

No matter what type of business you run, you can help the environment and attract customers by supporting bicycles. Through the city’s CityRacks program, you can request free sidewalk bicycle parking racks. We also encourage you to contact your government officials in support of bringing buffered bike lanes to our Avenues.

You will also find a wealth of links and information on reducing waste (and cutting costs) in your business in the business section at New York’s NYCWasteLe$$ website.


If you run a restaurant, you can hook up with and learn from the Green Restaurant Association, which provides information about cost-effective environmental solutions and practices, and provides a Green Restaurant certification.

If you run a grocery, you may soon be able to use GreenLeaf Market to easily connect with local food producers to obtain the local and organic foods your shoppers want.

In the future we hope to have more information for greening your business. In the meantime, check out our ideas for individuals, and consider joining us to help make the whole community more livable.

Please share your ideas and success with us.
