A total of 54 Watsonville businesses have voluntarily completed this rigorous certification process. In order to become a Green Business, the business owner must implement a host of recycling, energy conservation, storm water pollution prevention, and green purchasing measures.

The Green Business Program staff also verifies that applicants are fully in compliance with all local regulations in connection with the City's Source Control Manager, Recycling Coordinator, and the Air Resources Board. The certified businesses set an excellent example for other businesses. In Watsonville, the program has developed strong interest therefore resulting in a growing number of applicants.
