Lynden Businesses Recertified Green Star

By Karen Robes Meeks

Lynden Transport, Alaska West Express, Lynden International and Lynden Air Cargo have been re-certified as Green Star businesses at a recent Alaska Forum on the Environment event in Anchorage, Alaska.

Addressing the Anchorage Rotary last February, Lynden’s Green Initiative Coordinator Anna Deal talked about the Lynden companies’ environmental advancements, including how “Lynden’s common-sense approach to going green is good business and how small changes can add up to big savings for businesses and the environment.”

Established in 1990, Green Star is the only program on Pollution Prevention in Alaska. It seeks to lower or remove the volume or toxicity of materials, pollutants, or wastes at the source so that they never become waste in the first place.
