Healthy Spot Dog Boutique Receives Sustainability Award

HEALTHY SPOT (, one of the Santa Monica's first certified green businesses, was recognized Friday, July 30th, 2010 by California's State Senate, awarded an Environmental Sustainability Award for their efforts as a leading retail provider of organic food, premium services and healthy lifestyles for their canine customers. As one in only 12 award recipients per year personally endorsed by Senator Fran Pavley and selected in a district stretching from Santa Monica to Ventura with over 975,000 residents, the award is quite an accolade and reaffirms HEALTHY SPOT's position as a leader in "green" business practices.

In 2005, the City of Santa Monica, the Santa Monica Chamber of Commerce, Sustainable Works and the Santa Monica Convention and Visitors Bureau teamed up to create the Green Business Certification Program. HEALTHY SPOT was one of the first to become a green certified business, requiring them to reduce solid waste and promote recycling, become water and energy efficient, purchase products that are less harmful to human health and the environment, minimize pollution into Santa MonicaBay and educate consumers about their practices.

In addition to their commitment to better overall environmental business practices, HEALTHY SPOT owners, Andrew Kim and Mark Boonnark, work diligently to supply their customers with a wide selection of the best in eco-friendly toys, treats, supplies and grooming products as well as the highest level of customer and canine care.

"To be recognized for something we're so passionate about is such a great honor," says Kim, who researches and guarantees every product sold in the store. "Ultimately we just want to provide our customers with the best possible products for the health and care of their pets."
