We were very pleased to be recognized Thursday by the Arlington Chamber of Commerce at their 24th annual Best Business Awards, the ABBIES. Bean Kinney received a Green Business Award for our efforts in green building projects, lecturing and writing, and development of our sustainability policy. As quoted from the event by our friends at the Sun Gazette, “Sustainability is here to stay,” said Tim Hughes of Bean Kinney. “In our mind, it’s not only good citizenship, but it’s good business.”
Thanks again goes out to Shari Shapiro who provided a lot of good thoughts and advice on the path to development of our sustainability policy. She also gets the funniest quote, via twitter, related to the same: “Lawyers hold on to their bottled water like two year olds and their sippy cups.” I am happy to report that not only is BKK unhooked off the bottled water quite nicely, but my daughter does not squawk too much when I hand her a regular cup.
