Chason Hecht, President of from Retensa and I talked about his Green Grant on my blog talk radio show. This is FREE GRANT MONEY and is meant to:
The Retensa Green Grant offers free service grants to:
- Reward companies for their environmental excellence
- Increase the impact and effectiveness of green companies
- Reduce employee turnover
- Increase employee productivity
- Reduce employee costs and money
WHAT IS THE RETENSA GREEN GRANT?
The Retensa Green Grant enables environmentally responsible organizations to create exceptional work environments. The program awards grants to organizations committed to providing green services, creating green energy, and developing green products or sustainable food.
They even extended the deadline for us!! I am helping Retensa get the good word out about green grants. They are not a sponsor of the green living guy. It’s just the right thing to do!
To be eligible, you must fulfill all five (5) requirements below:
- Be a US-based company.
- Be in operation for at least two years.
- Have ten or more employees.
- Green energy, products, or services must make up 51% or more of the total company revenue.
- You must be able to categorize your company as either green product, green energy, or green service focused. See definitions below.
