September 19, 2018 What Being a Green America Certified Business Means To Us As a local small business, we at Shepherd’s Dream always strive to hold the highest standards of quality and comfort. Being certified with Green America is just one of the many ways we can assure our customers that we’re providing a socially and environmentally responsible product. Being certified with Green America means we follow best practices and principles that align ourselves with environmental sustainability, social and economic justice, as well as employee health and development. These principles are integrated into every aspect of our business – from the shepherd’s fields all the way into our customer’s hands. All of our employees earn a living wage and work in safe, healthy conditions. We are proud to play an important role in our community as a model for other businesses that stand up for being socially just and environmentally sustainable. We know our Shepherd’s Dream customers are looking for something different. They’re looking for environmentally sound wool products. Our Green America certification lets everyone know that we’re authentic in our mission, which is to provide a product that can stand upon our core values of social and environmental responsibility. We take pride in the products we make. We want you to have the best night’s sleep possible, which is why such great care is taken to ensure our wool is processed with the highest standards, that our professional production team works in a healthy environment, and that each and every step we take is a step towards a greener planet. As a certified Green America business, we can happily display our stamp of approval on our website to let everyone know we’ve been recognized for keeping our word. We want the whole world to know that our commitment to being a sustainable business is an around-the-clock priority. We also hope to inspire other businesses in our community to pledge their efforts in making more impactful changes in their practices.
