If you’re a small business owner in the SF Bay Area who is looking for help “going green”, the Inspiring Green Leadership group has an event on Tuesday April 3rd that can help you out, for free. Details follow:
Be Coached by a Volunteer EnviroMentor who Wants You to be a Green Business
If your business is an office, a retail operation, a hotel or a restaurant and it is located in San Francisco, you are eligible for the program. Come to the Engagement Event on April 3 and you’ll learn how the Saving Green by Going Green Accelerator will support you to become recognized as a green business by the City of San Francisco. We will explain in detail how the program works as well as pair you with a volunteer EnviroMentor. In a nutshell, if you choose to participate, you will be coached by a volunteer until July 1 to support you in greening your business.
When you pass the city’s inspections, you’ll become a recognized green business. And best of all, it’s free!


Why would you want to do this?

Business has the opportunity to make a huge difference in the environment. Not only that, your business will:
* receive a free energy audit worth between $250 and $400
* lower its carbon footprint — helping slow climate change
* learn about exciting new green products and services for your business
* meet other businesses who have a commitment to the environment
It’s the perfect way to become a green business!

Can I just show up at the Engagement Event?
