Climate Leader Award given to The Inn On First for exceptional green practices.

We were already feeling great in 2010 when we were awarded the Certificate of Special Congressional Recognition for invaluable service to the community by the office of Mike Thompson, our Congressional representative in Washington, D.C.   In 2010 we were also awarded a Certificate of Recognition by the California State Legislature for outstanding recycling efforts, and we strive to make our Inn a better place for everyone.

Now in 2014 we are excited to announce that we are one of thirteen businesses in the State of California to receive a Climate Leader Award from CoolCalifornia.org that is funded by the California Environment Protection Agency. This award recognizes California small businesses that demonstrate exceptional climate change management practices and communication.  We also received Certificates of Recognition from our State Senator, Lois Wolk, and our State Assembly Member, Mariko Yamada. It was a fun afternoon in Sacramento with the other award winners and to see that small businesses throughout the State of California can and do take steps that have significant impact upon the environment.  We may be small, but we are mighty.
