With only three official days left to the 30-Day Danville Area Sustainable Business Challenge, local businesses are still signing on to get sustainable.
The challenge may be ending, but the business community has demonstrated that they care about saving energy, water, reducing waste and preventing pollution in their day-to-day business operations.
Twenty One Tango, a contemporary ladies boutique with a wide variety of affordable fashion, recently took the pledge to get sustainable.
Also joining onto the program is College Nannies and Tutors, a locally owned office of the nation’s largest resource for customized nanny and tutoring services.
And one of the program’s student sustainability consultants, Kelley Sullivan will be off to visit Yogurt Shack this week to complete the checklist.
Last Friday I reported that we would recognize more than fifteen local businesses at the Danville Area Chamber of Commerce Business After-Hours Mixer on Thursday, April 14th, but in fact we will be recognizing 20 Danville Area Sustainable Businesses that evening.
We may even have more businesses to recognize by the April event. Because of the overwhelming response to the 30-Day Challenge, the Danville Area Sustainable Business Council will continue to work with businesses to get sustainable, even though the challenge is coming to an end.
We want to celebrate our Danville Area Sustainable Businesses so we are planning a Spring Fling.
Visit Discover Danville or Sustainable Danville Area's websites for the calendar of eco-friendly activities including bike-to-lunch specials, edible gardening projects, composting, childrens' music projects and more.
And remember, the list of Danville Area Sustainable Businesses continues to grow, so look for the Danville Area Sustainable Business logo where you shop and do business.
