Green Storage, which operates eight self-storage facilities throughout Ontario, has received a “Business Excellence Award in Sustainability” from the Ajax-Pickering Board of Trade. The award recognizes local businesses for excellence, community support, leadership, and sustainability, as well as individual business achievements. Green Storage facilities have numerous eco-friendly features, including rooftop solar panels, cool-roof systems, electric vehicle-charging stations, insulated glass windows, low-flow plumbing fixtures, motion-sensor LED lighting, and in-floor radiant heating within the units. Its business cards are made from recycled paper and its moving and packing supplies are created from sustainable, recycled materials. The facilities also use digital rental agreements to save on paper and offer customers the use of electronics-recycling bins. In addition, the company plants a tree for every signed lease, which led to 4,000 plantings last year.
