Check Out Some Of Vienna's Most Sustainable Businesses!
Preserving the natural wonders of nature requires some level of sustainability from businesses and industries. The Town of Vienna created a sustainability challenge, sponsored by the Conservation and Sustainability Commission, that encouraged local businesses to adopt five key practices: energy conservation, waste conservation, waste reduction, transportation, and purchasing.
Nine businesses and organizations in the town were recognized for their sustainability. Two were religious organizations: the Vienna Assembly of God and the Vienna Presbyterian Church. The other seven are businesses that prioritized their customers, area, and environment while providing fantastic products and services. Their efforts make the Town of Vienna a better place to live.
