EnviroStars is a voluntary program offered to local small businesses. The program certifies businesses that have practices and policies in place which demonstrate proper management and reduction of hazardous waste. A unique partnership between agencies and non-profits provides participants with public recognition and advertising.

If your small business in Spokane County would like to apply for EnviroStars certification, contact Tonilee Hanson at 847-4337 (cell), 535-7084 (office) or tonilee@spokaneriver.net. An onsite consultation, at no charge, will take you through a local source control checklist and the EnviroStars application. When the requirements are met, your business will qualify for EnviroStars recognition.

As a consumer, you’re shopping smart when you choose EnviroStars-certified businesses. You’ll be helping to protect the Spokane River and the Spokane Valley-Rathdrum Prairie Aquifer. Restoring the health of the river and keeping the aquifer clean go hand-in-hand with a vibrant community that’s good for people and businesses, too.
