TACOMA, Wash. – The Tahoma Business Environmental Award is presented annually by the Tacoma-Pierce County Chamber to a local business for its outstanding environmental stewardship.
This year’s award was presented to Ocean5 – Table 47 of Gig Harbor, Washington.
Ocean5 – Table 47 received the Tahoma Business Environmental Award for, among other things, it’s innovative building which was awarded the LEED Silver certification in September 2018 for their building design. Some key features include:
- 3.6 miles of geothermal wells under the parking lot that heat and cool the entire building
- 22 bowling lanes using string pinsetters, using less energy than motorized free falling pins
- LED lights throughout the building, including the two-story laser arena
- Carpet made of 100% recycled carpet content, including material made of discarded commercial fishing nets left in the oceans
- Recycled wine corks used in the Salish Sea Lounge walls
- Grown and raised ingredients, working with local farmers in Gig Harbor and Pierce County
- Over 40 local taps of beer and wine, sending fewer individual bottles to the landfill
The Chamber is proud to recognize forward-thinking businesses and organizations throughout Tacoma and Pierce County. Congratulations, Ocean5 – Table 47!
