GloryBee receives RE:Think Certification

GloryBee announced today that they have been awarded RE:Think certification from Bring Recycling as a testament to their commitment to conserve natural resources and reducing waste. The RE:Think award was presented to GloryBee by Bring Recycling in September, after completing the certification process which involved validation of actions by BRING recycling.

In order to qualify for RE:Think certification, a business is required to use paper products containing a minimum of 30% recycled content, use biodegradable and non-toxic cleaners, and complete at least half of required actions in the categories of recycling, waste prevention, operations, energy, water conservation, and water quality.

Businesses are scored according to how well they meet the criteria. In all categories, GloryBee completed 182 of Bring’s RE:Think actions, for an average completion rate of 87% - much higher than the 50% required rate.

About BRING Recycling
In 1971, a group of volunteers decided to do something about waste. A few weeks later, BRING Recycling was born, one of many non-profit environmental groups inspired by the first Earth Day in 1970. That first year, the fledgling organization collected 400 tons of glass and launched the "reduce, reuse, recycle" way of life. Recycling is now a core value in our community. Bring is rated one of the 100 Best Green Oregon Businesses by Oregon Business Journal.
