MALIBU, Calif., April 15, 2012
The Malibu Country Mart, known as one of Southern California’s premiere retail centers, continues its on-going commitment to eco-conscious practices. On Earth Day the Mart was certified by Mr. Dan Mabe of The Greenstation for the Mart's implementation of cordless, emission-free gardening and location maintenance tools.
The Malibu Country Mart’s Green Initiative Program includes a comprehensive composting and recycling program, the use of drought-tolerant succulents and native vegetation, plant-based biodegradable cleaning products and participation in a biofuels program where grease from restaurants is turned into biodiesel fuel.
About the Malibu Country Mart
