Green Business Practices
Since the time we opened our doors in February of 2004, we have made a commitment to be an environmentally aware and conscientious business. Our letterhead and brochures are printed on recycled paper, our furnishings are predominantly made from renewable or recycled materials and our purchases are made through local businesses whenever possible. Every location is Green Business Certified through the Monterey Bay Area Green Business Association.
