Corwin is a family-owned, beverage distribution company with a long history in Southwest Washington. Since becoming a Clark County Green Business in 2011 as part of the pilot program, their green team of 6-8 employees has continued to make incremental changes and incorporate sustainable business practices into their daily operations. Celebrating their 75th anniversary this year, Corwin has never been greener.
Within the last year a Paperless Committee was formed to reduce paper use. By installing several electronic document scanners and emailing electronic bill statements, Corwin has saved 150,000 sheets of paper within the last year. Paper conservation also occurred when the green team worked on a project to install hand dryers in the restrooms as an alternative to paper towels.
Corwin creates a green culture and makes it a priority for their employees to be actively engaged in the local community and their sustainable business practices. As an alternative to grass landscaping, a community garden was installed several years ago. This garden is all organic and produces fresh fruit and vegetables the employees are welcome to share with their families. Through encouraging employees to volunteer at local environmental tree planting and stream restoration days, and inviting employees to work in the community garden on site whenever possible Corwin is consistently creating a green culture in the workplace.
