Other Sustainability Notes

Once better. by BlueStar learned about the efforts of Climate Neutral we became very excited as they aligned perfectly with our mission. We believe that no one can do everything, but everyone can do something. While we all know the daunting facts of climate change and our contributions to the problem, doing business with the planet in mind can help mitigate some of those problems. We feel that reducing our carbon footprint while paying for the amount we use is something we can do to make the earth a healthier place to live. Being Climate Neutral Certified is an important aspect of our business.
