The first 25 members to update their Maryland Green Registry member profile will receive a free can of delicious Chesapeake Bay Roasting Company coffee!

While Maryland Green Registry members each choose their own path to sustainability, the unifying requirement for the program is a commitment to strive for continual improvement. This means setting new goals and trying out new practices and products that make sense for your business while also reducing your environmental impact. Members are welcome to update their online member profiles whenever there are new practices or results to share, but no less frequently than every three years.

If you are overdue to update your profile, you now have have a great incentive!  Maryland Green Registry member, Chesapeake Bay Coffee Roasting Company, roasts USDA OrganicBird-Friendly beans right here in Maryland and is committed to a variety of environmental causes.  The first 25 members that are at least one year past their last update and update their profiles with new information will receive a code to order the coffee online.

To update your profile, email us to receive your current profile which you can edit and return. Out of ideas on new measures to adopt?  Visit the Registry tip pages, or contact us!

EPS ban

Foodware Facts

When you're drinking that wonderful free coffee, we hope it's in a reusable mug!  

Picking the right food and service ware is important whether you're in the food service industry or just hosting meetings and events. The first step is to look for opportunities to reduce disposable foodware, and where that is not possible, to choose the products you buy wisely. This toolkit will help you take the first steps and learn how others have saved money through lower waste fees.

Also be aware that Baltimore City, Montgomery County, Prince George’s County and Washington, D.C. have all passed bans on expanded polystyrene (EPS) foam. Foam food packaging is a major component of litter in Maryland’s waterways and absorbs pesticides, fertilizers, and chemicals that increase exposure to aquatic life. Once EPS foam enters the environment, it is difficult to get out, so making every effort to reduce waste and procure environmentally preferable products is the way to go.
