Greenopia Environment Achievement:
Eel River is a small craft brew that only produces organic beers. This is preferable for the environment because organically grown inputs do not require the usage of hazardous pesticides and fertilizers. Traditional pesticides and fertilizers can lead to eutrophication and acidification. Eel River operates in a building made with recycled and reclaimed fixtures and powers its facilities with 100% Biogas. Eel River also has around average environmental reporting although more environmental metric reporting would be appreciated.
We were unable to find any information pertaining to any transportation efficiencies undertaken by Eel River. Finally, we would love to see more detailed environmental reporting.
Eel River has consistently been one of our greenest beer companies and this year is no different. Eel River deserves a lot of credit for what it has accomplished.
