Guy Souliere, owner of Guytel

As a owner , I wanted to make my small business sustainable meaning to have minimal negative impact, and potentially a positive effect, in my community, so in 2009 I enrolled in a green business management course a 1 year program . This gave me the ability and tools to make a plan to make my business sustainable. Using this program and tools I found it easy to implement sustainability processes in my small business.
In doing so I save thousands of dollars per year. The entire staff loved it, got involved and came up with even more ways of making Guytel sustainable, and started successful “Blue Bin program” a federal government telephone repair program that 60 departments signed up for.
“Now I’m on a journey to help small businesses like Guytel become sustainable”
Thank you Adrienne
