Local Businesses Honored

Oct 30, 2016 09:04PM ● Published by Elena Hutslar

Barrelista Coffee House & Café in Martinez was honored for dramatically reducing waste by using compostable food trays, cutlery, and cups and by serving iced espresso drinks in mason jars that customers can keep and reuse.

Four businesses were identified as shining examples of environmental stewardship within our community and presented with a 2016 Pollution Prevention Award by the Central Contra Costa Sanitary District (Central San) at Sustainable Contra Costa’s annual Leadership in Sustainability and Green Building Awards Gala on September 21. Barrelista Coffee House & Café, Kee’s Auto Body, Mike’s Auto Body and Walnut Creek Chrysler, Jeep, Dodge and Ram were recognized.


“We love honoring local businesses that take extraordinary steps to safeguard the environment,” said Central San General Manager Roger Bailey. “Whether coffee shops, auto body shops, or car dealerships, they are going above and beyond by recycling, reducing waste, conserving resources, and taking other actions to prevent water pollution in our area. We applaud this year’s award winners and all businesses that make protecting the environment a top priority.” Since initiating the program in 1992, Central San has recognized more than 100 environmentally friendly local businesses.
