Congratulations Que SeRaw SeRaw and Putnam Automotive

The City's Green Business Award winners are going above and beyond to conserve resources and are saving money in the process.
Que SeRaw SeRaw is a unique local take-out eatery off Broadway that serves raw vegan food made from local and organic ingredients. Their mission is to provide delicious food that has a low environmental impact. They also compost all food scraps, exclusively use recyclable or compostable packaging, and enrolled in Peninsula Clean Energy ECO100 to receive 100% renewable energy.
Putnam Automotive is the City's renowned dealership along California Drive. Putnam worked with San Mateo County Energy Watch to upgrade the outdoor lighting to LED lights in all their facilities, including the Mazda/Subaru, Nissan, Volvo, Toyota, Jeep/Chrysler/Dodge, GM, Fiat dealerships. They received $47,000 in rebates and are saving $5,000/month in electricity bills - a 30% drop. Putnam also recycles close to 95% of their waste and is exploring using tablets in their service shops to eliminate paper use.
Congratulations to these two excellent Burlingame businesses!
