Matthew Henderson is exceeding the expectations in his field work and is determined to have as many business owners as he can get to become a Certified Sustainable Business. Within the past month, Matthew has reached out to numerous boroughs within Allegheny and Beaver County. Through his diligence and determination, the success of the Sustainable Business Designation program is a leading example of how to begin improving a community. Moreover, it is important to understand the work Matthew has done as part of a larger picture in promoting sustainability, not only in local communities but also within the greater region of Southwestern Pennsylvania. The idea of Matthew’s work is a bottom up approach toward sustainable communities, while other projects he is working on are guided from the top down, allowing for a wider spectrum of outreach to the region’s communities.
