Congrats to Coal Point Trading

The EcoLogical Team, in conjunction with Homer Chamber of Commerce, would like to thank, and congratulate, the first recipient of the EcoLogical Team Award: Coal Point Trading Company. They have worked hard in becoming a business with sustainable and environmentally friendly practices.

These practices include having recycling available to the public, and also having recycling within their business. They also provide compostible take-home containers for the public,

Not only does Coal Point meet all the criteria for the EcoLogical Award which can be found by contacting Homer Chamber of Commerce and Visitor Center at 235-7740 membership@homeralaska.org, but they also exceeded all of them. One thing showing this business's commitment to exemplary sustainable practices is their green roof, as well as their solar panels.

We commend them for their efforts of reducing waste to the Homer Landfill and reducing their overall energy consumption. We would like to congratulate them again, and encourage other businesses to follow their example.

Reduce. Reuse. Recycle.
