Spotlight on Zia’s Cafe

This week’s Clean Currents commercial customer spotlight is on Zia’s Cafe of Towson Maryland:

CC: Why did you think it was important to support clean renewable wind energy?

Zia’s: As a cafe & caterer of wholesome, cleanly produced foods, our passion and dedication is offering health-conscious foods that are also earth-conscious, minimizing our impact whenever possible.  So, for us, green power is kind of a no-brainer.  Clean Currents has helped us come full circle in our dedication to the planet by providing clean, green energy!

CC: Why do you care about global warming and clean energy solutions?

Zia’s: It’s so easy to ignore or push aside these kinds of problems because it’s not a sexy, sensationalized kind of story, which seems to be what gets the attention of the everyday American.  The human race destroys our environment a little bit each day and it’s difficult to see this quantitatively, particularly one person or one business’s impact.  But it is a international tragedy that knows not race, ethnicity, economic or social status, creed or religion, whose effects will begin to rear their ugly head more and more as the majority continues to live in ignorance and/or apathy.  However, we’ve all heard it before (hopefully), all YOU can do is YOUR part and support/encourage others to do the same.  That’s what we plan to do.

CC: Why did you pick Clean Currents?

Zia’s: Clean Currents offers competitive rates while understanding the importance of marketing and promoting our company’s choice to go 100% wind powered.  CC’s attention to detail, support and customer service have been extremely impressive, professional and pleasurable, making us proud to be affiliated with them and what they are doing.

CC: What are actions in your personal or professional life have you taken to reduce your climate impact?

Zia’s:  We use 100% recycled paper when we print documents.  We obsessively monitor our use of energy and our whole staff is dedicated to making sure we don’t waste energy.  We offer zero waste catering as well as compostable paper products.  We obviously do all the other little things like recycling and using green cleaning products, etc.
