The Green Business Program of Santa Barbara County is now recruiting businesses for its 2016 Green Business Academy. The Academy provides tools and training to help businesses go green by implementing sustainable strategies that can save money and are better for the environment. Businesses can achieve their green business certification by participating in a series of four workshops over four months. Participants form a cohort where networking and peer-learning are encouraged. Visit www.grenbizsbc.org for the complete schedule.
