San Diego Hydroponics & Organics Recognized by the City for “GREEN” efforts.
SD Hydro’s Earth-friendly nature has been noticed by the City of San Diego. We have been selected by the City of San Diego’s Environmental Services Department as one of the “Recyclers of the Year” in the 2013 Waste Reduction and Recycling Awards Program! This award is given to local businesses who have the most innovative and comprehensive recycling programs in San Diego. Our recycling and waste reduction program includes post-consumer recycled paper products, the minimization of plastic bags at checkout, bulb recycling, growing food in-store that is passed along to customers and staff, as well as community outreach and education efforts.
Here at SD Hydro we work hard to implement environmentally responsible practices in all aspects of our store. For instance, if you’ve ever used our bathroom the thought may have crossed your mind that our TP situation might need some consideration. But actually we choose to forgo the 7-ply paper bliss in the name of reduced waste and eco-friendly toilet paper. Too much information? Just keeping it real and letting you know that your sacrifice was not in vain-I’m sure we must have saved a tree or two by now.
SD Hydro representatives will be attending a special media event to receive recognition by Mayor Bob Filner for our green efforts on Earth Day, April 22, at the San Diego International Airport.
This recognition is a big deal for us as a company and for some of the staff on an individual level. It acknowledges and validates the time, energy and money (in addition to friendly fights between employees) spent on appropriate recycling etiquette.
We rarely have an appropriate opportunity to brag about how awesome we are and this just happens to be one of those times so we wanted to take a moment and give ourselves a big pat on the back! GOOD JOB TEAM AWESOME!
