EUGENE,OR—June 11,2013—Mountain Rose Herbs, one of the nation’s largest bulk suppliers of organic herbs, spices, and teas, is honored to be recognized as one of 100 Best Companies to Work For in Oregon project. The 100 Best Green Companies were determined by an anonymous employee survey and an independent assessment of the employers’ sustainability practices. There were 440 organizations and more than 18,000 employees participating in the project. Mountain Rose Herbs placed ninth and was presented with the award at Oregon Business magazine’s fifth annual celebration on May 29th, with approximately 300 people in attendance. Sustainability Director Alyssa Lawless accepted the award on behalf of Mountain Rose Herbs.
Those who completed the survey were asked to rate how they thought their workplaces were doing in ten different categories, including recycling and waste reduction, having a “green” mission and company-wide goals, support for public transit and alternative transportation, energy and water conservation, and purchasing locally. Companies were then scored and rated based on the results. This was the first year Mountain Rose Herbs was considered for the list.
Vice President and co-owner Shawn Donnille views this award as not only an honor, but also a mandate for the future. “I cannot begin to express my thanks and gratitude to all of the employees at Mountain Rose Herbs whose praise and support enabled us to be number 9 on the 100 Best Green Companies to Work For in Oregon. Through their strong opinions, it has been made clear that we have created a company that is fair and sustainable, and I can promise all of them that we will continue enhancing our programs to make it even better,” Donnille said.
