2021 Nature-rich Business Guide
Dear Community Members,
With a common interest in making our lakeshore communities the best place to live, work, learn, and play our organizations are pleased to launch the first issue of the Nature-rich Business Guide. It is our hope that this resource will inform sustainably-minded shoppers, recognize businesses and organizations doing their part, and encourage others to take action. We are proud of our Nature-rich community and encourage you to engage with these businesses in their efforts to become more sustainable.

What is a Nature-rich business?
Nature-rich businesses support sustainability, resiliency, and livability. Together they help make our lakeshore communities the best place to live, work, learn, and play. Recognition in this guide is not a certification or ranking, but an acknowledgement of positive action and sustainable improvements.
How are Nature-rich businesses nominated?
2021 nominees were identified through community outreach by this year’s supporting partners for their commitments to the various pillars of the City of Holland Sustainability Framework. Know of a business that should be featured in the next edition of the Nature-rich Business Guide? Tell us about it here!
