Bellevue participates in the regional green business recognition program, EnviroStars, which is a free, one-stop hub for Washington businesses to get information, assistance, free resources and recognition for actions that protect the environment and employee health and safety. Businesses in Bellevue, Seattle, and beyond now have just one place to go to learn how to green their business and get recognized for their efforts – whether saving energy and water, or reducing waste and pollution.

Just enter your business address at to easily find incentives, rebates and resources to reduce waste, energy and pollution and to start the process of becoming a recognized EnviroStars business.

Bellevue can help your business get recognized. Call our EnviroStars Hotline at 1-877-220-7827.
The hotline offers free multilingual assistance for Spanish / Español, Vietnamese / 㗂越, Mandarin / 官话, Russian / ру́сский язы́к, Tagalog, Korean / 한국어, Amharic / አማርኛ, and Somali / ˜اَف صَومالي.

The EnviroStars program has been expanded to assist and recognize all aspects of green business, including recycling and waste reduction, stormwater, energy use, water conservation, transportation and hazardous waste. It is led by a coalition of utilities, cities and counties and advised by a diverse volunteer business committee.
