Small businesses across New Jersey are starting to save money, share their successes and inspire other businesses by implementing sustainable business best practices. Joining this list of small businesses, Green Point Juicery located in Verona became one of the first businesses in the state to be recognized as a New Jersey Sustainable Business.
In August of 2014, the New Jersey Small Business Development Centers (NJSBDC) launched the New Jersey Sustainable Business Registry. The registry is an Internet site where businesses that have implemented sustainable business practices can register their achievements and be recognized.
Green Point Juicery achieved recognition for its use of biodegradable products, eco-friendly cleaning solutions, its emphasis on the importance of recycling, and the use of seasonal local produce. Its composting initiative efforts resulted in 20,000 pounds of yearly waste reduction that resulted in a $1,200 savings for the Township of Verona.
Green Point Juicery is an organic juice bar offering raw cold pressed juices, superfood real fruit smoothies, wheatgrass, immune boosters, and raw vegan snacks.
When it comes to sustainability Green Point Juicery knows that even the smallest details go a long way and make a huge impact on the environment. The juicery makes fresh juices with seasonal local produce from Morgan’s Farm and donates all of juicing pulp back to the farm for compost. The juicery also uses biodegradable cups, straws, and utensils.
