"Earning our Green Business Certification from Green America is not only an honor, but also a feather in the cap of any business that genuinely cares about the environment. I have always been an eco-conscious consumer, but having a professional organization committed to recognizing the efforts of eco-friendly businesses lets us know that our labor is not in vain. The process was thorough, but not at all invasive. The Nail Belle is honored to have earned our Green Business Certification and we display it with great pride. Stay Green, America!"
