Year-over-year fast growth is difficult to maintain. First, to make the Puget Sound Business Journal’s list of 100 Fastest-Growing Private Companies, a company must have achieved rapid growth for three years. To repeat that performance is not an easy task. For the companies that make the list four or more years, the Business Journal acknowledges them in the Hall of Fame. None has made the list more than seven times since the list was first created — until now.

Check out this article about how we've helped clean up Pioneer Square alleys...
What can a downtown alley be used for? More than you think—and a group in Pioneer Square has been working to prove it. The network of businesses connected to the historic Nord building, located near First Avenue and Main Street, has created a vibrant and charming social space in an unlikely locale: the alleyway behind their offices.
Todd Vogel of the International Sustainability Institute bought two floors of the Nord in 2007, and began using it for his own office space as well as renting space to a number of for-profit and non-profit tenants. When he moved in, he began doing small things to clean up the adjoining alley, wanting to send a signal to others to respect the space.

Only a few months after launching garbage collection services in Seattle, CleanScapes Inc. is trying to land a contract with the city of Kent. The contract for the city of 87,000 could be worth about $200 million over its full length of 11 years, said Kelly Peterson, environmental conservation supervisor for Kent.
Once again, the relatively small, Seattle-based CleanScapes will be competing with a few giant corporations, including the two biggest in the industry: Waste Management Inc., a Houston-based company with $12.4 billion in revenue, and Allied Waste, a Phoenix-based company with $6 billion in revenue that recently merged with Republic Services, becoming the second-biggest in the country.
Gardeners in Shoreline cannot recycle plastic plant pots curbside, but several Shoreline businesses accept containers for recycling. Some nurseries will re-use these pots and trays -- making your gardening practices even "greener."
Green thumbs Seattle rest assured: The heaps of empty plastic plant pots sitting outside your garden shed can all be recycled in your curbside recycling! Just be sure to give them a good shake and a rinse. Loose dirt can contaminate loads of recyclables.
Recyclable nursery pots include square and round pots and seedling trays of all colors.
