In June of 2017, Valley Montessori School earned its California Green Business Certification! We are the only school in the tri-valley and just one of three in the state of California with this distinguished honor.
As part of the Valley Montessori Strategic Plan to show our commitment to the environment, the Strategic Planning Committee established the goal of becoming a California Green Business. This was a rigorous process requiring action in four critically important categories:
- Waste Reduction
- Energy Efficiency
- Water Conservation
- Pollution Management
Contrary to what some may think, becoming a green business is much more than recycling and composting. Throughout the year, we will be sharing measures we took in each of these categories to become certified and steps we will continue to take to show our commitment and to maintain our certification.
