Criteria to Apply
We’re so excited you’re ready to be part of our directory! Please note the basic criteria outlined below that your company or organization should meet in order to be considered for membership. If these criteria are not met but you feel that your company or organization shares our vision and values, we encourage you to apply (e.g., you may not be locally owned, but your practices make you eligible to be a Community Partner).
- Company should be privately held (not publicly traded).
- Company or organization should be headquartered within the 4-county Greater Seattle Area—King, Snohomish, Kitsap, and Pierce; or at least within the state of Washington.
- Company or organization owner(s) should be local, meaning 50% or more of the ownership should also reside in Washington State.
- Company must be socially and environmentally conscious and must be committed to doing things locally—buying, producing, and investing—as much as reasonably possible.
