As it advances its vision for Wilton to become Connecticut\u2019s most sustainable town, Wilton Go Green is reaching out to the local business community with its new \u201cGreen Business Designation\u201d campaign. The program celebrates companies and organizations that practice good earth stewardship in their general operations by taking action in five sustainability categories. Companies and nonprofits that do so can earn a certificate of recognition and a window decal to display proudly and show the public, clients and employees that they are committed to smarter use of essential natural resources like clean air and clean water. Wilton Go Green collaborated with the Wilton Chamber of Commerce on the \u201cGreen Business Designation\u201d campaign, which was recently introduced at a special \u201cafter hours\u201d Chamber event, hosted by Naked Greens at 239 Danbury Road. Peg Koellmer, Wilton Go Green\u2019s newly appointed president, is encouraging the business community to select 12 action steps from a checklist of 46 best practices to earn the Green Business designation and decal, or choose 20 actions to earn the platinum level of recognition. Realty Seven One of the first businesses to get involved in this program is Realty Seven, owned by Ms. Koellmer. The real estate agency is seeking the platinum level as part of a series of initiatives to increase its commitment of good earth stewardship. \u201cAt Realty Seven, we realize it is our social responsibility to reduce our environmental impact as best we can,\u201d Ms. Koellmer said in a press release. \u201cBy seeking Wilton Go Green\u2019s platinum level award, we\u2019re working to protect and preserve the environment and to do our part to be good environmental stewards.\u201d The business now recycles all plastics, aluminum, glass, paper and cardboard, uses non-toxic cleaners and CFL light bulbs. \u201cWe chose action items that worked for our business and most have been quite simple to put into practice. We hope to expand our environmentally practices going forward,\u201d Ms. Koellmer said. Business community Wilton Go Green volunteers will be visiting businesses and organizations in the coming weeks to discuss the dynamics of the campaign and secure participants. The action steps range from making behavioral changes that reduce energy use, to others that might require tweaking purchasing policies or participation in a state-wide smart energy program that offers financial incentives or marketing benefits. Participating businesses and nonprofits will receive special recognition in social media and Wilton Go Green\u2019s other public awareness outreach.
