It is important to communicate the eco-sustainability!

In the last years, all over the world is increased the number of businesses that try to have a sustainable behavior, respectful for the environment. Everyday lots of new commercial activities decide to use sustainable ways to manage their company, and that is very important for the environment and for the quality of our daily life!
Some US businesses are interested in organic and sustainable principles, so they've signed up to The GreenWatcher and have done their EcoAssessment.

The EcoAssessment is an easy and fast manner for the companies that want to let the consumers share in the management of their ecosustainable activities, regarding some main areas: materials used and/or sold, waste management, energy consumption and CO2 emissions. These data are summed up in an unique number: the EcoScore... if you want to know something more about the calculation system of the EcoScore click HERE!
The Certificate of ecosustainability, including the achieved EcoScore, is sent via email after the EcoAssessment and is ready to be printed and showed to the clients, in order to be recognizable as an eco-sustainable business.
Let's discover together two selected sustainable companies that are making efforts to communicate and optimize their environmental impact, so where it's possible to have an aware and sustainable meal!
