DENVER, Dec. 13, 2016 /Weed Wire/ — L’Eagle, a retail cannabis dispensary specializing in clean cannabis, has earned recognition as a Certified Green Business from the City and County of Denver Department of Environmental Health. L’Eagle Services is the first cannabis company to achieve the standards set forth in this rigorous environmental certification for retail operations.
Certifiably Green Denver (CGD) provides free, confidential non-regulatory environmental assistance to Denver’s business community. The program helps businesses find opportunities to improve efficiency while minimizing environmental liability through pollution prevention. CGD recognizes businesses that demonstrate exemplary environmental achievement in five key areas: energy efficiency, water conservation, resource management, alternative transportation, and responsible business management.
Expanding the certification to cannabis retail stores recognizes the efforts of this new industry and promotes best practice standards for sustainability. CGD and L’Eagle Services have paved the way for other cannabis retail stores to achieve Certifiably Green certification.
“As the first cannabis retail store to be certified, L’Eagle Services has been instrumental in demonstrating how CGD’s standards apply to the cannabis retail environment,” said Emily Backus, Sustainability Advisor for CGD. “This includes offering an extensive recycling program that allows customers to drop off empty product packaging and upgrading lighting throughout the store and offices to LED.”
“L’Eagle Services is proud to be the first in the cannabis industry to achieve the retail standards set by Certifiably Green Denver,” said Amy Andrle, co-owner of L’Eagle Services. “At L’Eagle, we pride ourselves on using sustainable practices and providing the highest quality clean cannabis products to our guests. We have always strived to be environmentally friendly and set a high standard in our retail services. We are pleased that Denver has a program that recognizes our commitment to the best environmental practices.”
