LFUCG’s Green Check Program certifies 15 members

Lexington-Fayette Urban County Government (LFUCG) honored 15 Green Check members this year. New honorees included: Bluegrass Death Doula (Silver), Lexington Children’s Theatre (Silver), Nerd Babes Co. (Silver), Kids MakeIt Institute (Bronze), The Hearing & Speech Center (Bronze), Peer House (Bronze), and Lexington Pavement Sweep (Member). Businesses that were recertified include Good Foods Co-op (Gold), Bullhorn (Gold), EARTHeim Landscape Design (Gold), Most Valuable Pets (Gold), West Sixth Brewing (Silver), Bluegrass Landscapes (Silver), Carson’s Food & Drink (Silver), and Lexington Habitat for Humanity (Silver).

These businesses all demonstrate a commitment to increased sustainability within their facilities and operations. Examples of initiatives from the businesses include the installation of rain gardens, upgrades to energy-efficient lighting, office compost programs and the promotion of alternative transportation.  

Green Check recognizes businesses and organizations for their green initiatives and helps them expand their sustainability efforts. The free program begins with a personal consultation and completion of the Green Check Sustainability Scorecard. The Sustainability Scorecard caters to organizations across various sectors, including restaurants, non-profit organizations, retail, and manufacturers. Although the certification is valid for three years, member organizations are encouraged to pursue higher tiers through continued participation and achievement.  

The window to apply for Green Check Certification is open now through the end of the calendar year. Visit lexingtonky.com/GreenCheck for sustainable business resources and to apply for the program.
