One of the newest members to Green Cities, Matthew Henderson has moved right ahead in working with Sustainable Pittsburgh, initiating a Sustainable Business Designation Certification program. His first line of work was researching national certification programs that guided him into developing educational material for future business owners. These brochures, newsletters, and flyers will be handed to each business owner in providing a source of education principles and empowerment tools to owners. In addition to using his design skill, he has also had opportunities to participate in community outreach programs by attending town meetings with council member discussions for strategies and approaches in moving the certification program forward. Matthew’s enthusiasm has been widely accepted and appreciated in all 19 boroughs of Allegheny and Beaver county and will continued to be encouraged through the year.
