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.
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.
