envirostars logoEdmonds has participated in EnviroStars, Washington’s green business program, over the past year and a half, with seven local businesses officially certified: Walnut Street Coffee, Seattle Sugar Spa, The Refinery Salon, ARTspot, Lice Spies, Koenig Financial Group, and Ombú Salon & Spa. 

The program connects businesses with local environmental assistance, resources and utility rebates. Businesses earn EnviroStars recognition by taking steps to green their facilities and operational practices such as replacing inefficient lighting with LEDs, composting food scraps and switching to safer cleaning products.

“EnviroStars helps businesses implement best practices that save energy and water, generate less waste and pollution, and reduce their greenhouse gas emissions – choices that are both good for business and good for our local and regional environment,” commented Edmonds Economic Development and Community Services Director Patrick Doherty. “We hope that these first seven Edmonds businesses will pave the way for even more local businesses to enroll in EnviroStars.”

Consumers can visit EnviroStars.org to find businesses of all types that share their environmental values – whether they’re looking for a brewery, auto body shop, or insurance agency. Well-known Washington staples such as Chateau Ste. Michelle winery, Tom Douglas restaurants, and Fremont Brewing have joined EnviroStars, along with these Edmonds businesses and many more small businesses in the Puget Sound area. 

Edmonds supports EnviroStars as part of a coalition of 21 Washington cities, counties, utilities, and local public health jurisdictions reaching from Whatcom County to Pierce County. 

For more information about the program, feel free to contact Patrick Doherty at patrick.doherty@edmondswa.gov or 425-771-0251.

(Edmonds, WA) – Edmonds Mayor Mike Nelson has called a special Edmonds City Council meeting for 3 p.m. on Friday, March 27, 2020. He will ask Council to consider two actions.

Related to that Chapter, the Mayor will specifically ask for Council support for an amendment to Section 6.60.090 (which lays out items that could potentially be invoked by order of a mayor in case of emergency) by removing Subsection G related to carrying or possessing firearms with intent to do bodily harm. 

He will also ask Council to temporarily lift the plastic bag ban at ECC Chapter 6.80 to allow grocery stores to use plastic bags for the safer handling and take-out of merchandise. 

This meeting will be conducted virtually and live­-streamed on the city’s website and on TV21. Council Chambers will not be open, in compliance with Governor Inslee’s temporary, partial suspension of the Open Public Meetings Act to prevent the gathering of people in a single location.
