Sustainable Twin Ports has four new graduates: Lake Superior College, Fond du Lac Band of Lake Superior Chippewa, Canal Park Brewing Company, and UW-Superior.
The four organizations just completed a comprehensive, six month sustainability training program, teaching them how to become more sustainable environmentally, economically, and socially.
"What this does is creates a way for these businesses to make strategic action plans towards sustainability, and it makes you think through how to operationally make these changes," said Cara Lindberg, Board President of Sustainable Twin Ports.
In total, 30 different local organizations have been through the training program in its five years, including the City of Duluth, the Duluth Transit Authority, and the Duluth Grill.
Sustainable Twin Ports points to the Duluth Grill as a standout alumnus, who recently broke ground on an apple orchard in their parking lot.
