Nationally recognized, the EnviroStars Program certifies businesses for reducing, recycling, and properly managing hazardous waste. The program was created in King County, Washington in 1995 and has expanded to include Jefferson, Kitsap, Pierce, Skagit, Spokane and Whatcom Counties in the Puget Sound region. The program became available in Jefferson County in 2001.
The mission of the EnviroStars Program is to provide assistance and incentives for small businesses to reduce hazardous materials and waste to protect public health, municipal systems, and the environment.
Envirostars is an objective third-party certification that you can trust. Businesses certified by EnviroStars are given a two-to-five star rating based on their demonstrated commitment to reducing hazardous waste. The higher the star rating, the more proactive the business has been, and the more recognition they receive. Businesses with three stars or more are featured in success stories sent to local media, highlighted in radio and print advertisements, and nominated for environmental awards.
