Congratulations to Chamber Member,
Connie Anderson of Anderson Organizing
Local Organizing Business goes for the Green!
Getting organized never felt so good!
Connie Anderson and Supervisor Karen Mitchoff
On April 19, 2016 Connie Anderson, Professional Organizer and owner of Anderson Organizing was recognized by the Contra Costa County Board of Supervisors as a Certified Contra Costa Green Business. Supervisor Karen Mitchoff, District IV, presented Connie with her certification, one of only 16 other businesses to be recognized this quarter.
"I'm excited to share the philosophy of environmental stewardship with my clients as well as put it into practice, says Connie. "Every house, office, and storage unit always has something in it that can be recycled or donated. Often I fill my car to the brim with donations to drop off a local charity. It's a great feeling to work with clients who have a shared understanding that the earth needs our active participation to help keep her healthy. Together we are doing our part to reduce waste, recycle and re-use. It’s a win-win for everybody.”
Applying for certification is easy and free. Anderson Organizing encourages all Pleasant Hill Chamber Members to go for the green! This is especially true if you are already running your business with a healthy planet in mind. It’s also a great way to learn what steps you can take to start running your business in a more eco-friendly way. Your profit margin, the planet and your clients/customers will thank you!
