SEATTLE, WA -- Office furniture producer Watson Furniture, Poulsbo, WA, was named the Top Green Manufacturer in Washington at Seattle Business' Green 50 awards along with three other wood products companies. Seattle Business honorees included custom cabinetry manufacturer, Canyon Creek Cabinetry, Monroe, WA, and Weyerhaeuser, Federal Way, WA, a forest products company. Nichols Brothers Boat Builders, Freeland, WA, also made the 2011 list.

Entrants were judged on their input to the environment, the comprehensiveness of their efforts and the extent to which they provide a model for other organizations.

Watson was honored for sustainable manufacturing processes and products including design and maintenance of a manufacturing facility that has no floor drains, self contained and regulated disposal of waste water, use of regionally sourced materials that contain high recycled content, and manufacturing products that are end-of-use recyclable - some as high as 100%.
