SUSTAINABILITY FOCUSED
Even though they've had every opportunity
to expand and grow to other
parts of the Pacific Northwest, the
Jones men are committed to keeping it
local to the Puget Sound region.
Seattle has been a frontrunner
in the sustainability movement. The
region's composting and recycling
infrastructure encourages and supports
greener corporate environments
to a level that many municipalities and
operators are simply unable to provide
just yet.
Pot O' Gold takes the lead in promoting
sustainability in the workplace
by offering its expertise to help clients
convert products they purchase and
procedures in their offices to reduce

" Pot O' Gold is able to help our
clients by providing 'green' solutions
for everything in the breakroom. We
can provide tools to help educate them
and their employees on why this is
important, " Jones commented. " We
can help them determine what they're
trying to accomplish by going green
before making the decision to convert
their products. "

and utensils to environmentally
sustainable snacks. Jones explained
that can mean that the packaging
is biodegradable or recyclable
which means that it is sourced,
manufactured, transported and
recycled using renewable energy and
maximizes the use of renewable or
recycled source materials. The OCS
company also chooses roasters that
support sustainable operations that
contribute to the success of small
farming communities dedicated to
growing the best beans possible,

of which there's no shortage amid
Seattle's artisan coffee culture.
Cedar Grove Composting plays a
critical role in the Puget Sound's recycling
infrastructure and sustainability
efforts and all of the compostable
products Pot O' Gold carries are Cedar
Grove approved.
Another bonus to going green, Pot
O' Gold informs its customers, is that
organic recycling fees through a composting
service like Cedar Grove are
generally half of waste disposal service
costs, and recycling is a non-taxable
service. The City of Seattle charges a
14.2% city tax and a 3.6% state refuse
tax for all garbage collection, but
tax does not apply to organic wastes
hauled by Cedar Grove.
