 How Our Sponsors Combine Business and Sustainability

Bainbridge Disposal: Bainbridge Disposal is a family owned company proudly serving our community for more than 50 years. As a contractor to Kitsap County to service the refuse and recycling needs of Bainbridge Island and areas of Poulsbo, the company is part of our community. Over the years, they have adapted to changes in the county waste streams by adding services for more sustainable collection of the items we discard. The Vincent Road location has enhanced the recycle yard so residents can properly dispose of a number of items easily to keep them out of the landfill. Look at their web site for details. They involve themselves in the community in more ways than we can acknowledge, but we greatly appreciate their cash sponsorship supporting our show for three years straight.

Windermere Realty: Two full time Realtors in our community are back for their third year of sponsoring the Trashion Fashion Show. Diane Sugden and Patti Shannon have a huge affection for the sustainability of our community and treasure the efforts made to keep Bainbridge a place that is innovative and willing to "do the right thing.” Active in the annual Windermere Shredfest and the Rotary Auction, these two community volunteers promote the values of recycling and cleaning up our environment to the potential new residents they serve. Additionally, Patti and Diane are proactive in looking for ways to keep sustainability forefront in their daily lives. 

Heyday FarmWe welcome first-year sponsor Heyday Farm, a family-owned 25 acre sustainable and historic farm on Bainbridge Island. Environmental sustainability is coupled with economic sustainability in the Heyday business model. Ingredients for the Heyday Farm House dining are sourced from Heyday and other local farms, including Butler Green and Persephone, and from regional suppliers and foragers that share Heyday’s mission of sustainable and ethical production. The Farm attempts to "close the loop” using agro-ecological methods and composting on site. The Heyday Market sells locally grown produce and regional items in their storefront at Lynwood Center. If you have not paid them a visit, put it on your "must do” list.

Green Mountain Technologies: We are excited to have Green Mountain Technologies, a local Bainbridge Island company, join our list of cash sponsors. Since 1992 the company has been dedicated to helping forward-thinking organizations reduce their environmental footprint, save money and produce high quality compost. They have developed a comprehensive product line that includes sophisticated large-scale technologies for biosolids, windrows, Aerated Static Pile (ASP) solutions, cutting-edge software and probes, and some of the most popular in-vessel systems in the country.  From educational and institutional customers composting their own food waste to large municipalities and waste haulers processing thousands of tons of material per year, GMT has a system to meet your needs. Toward this end, Green Mountain Technologies is constantly working on new, innovative solutions to meet customer needs. You can see one of their vessels in action right here at IslandWood!

Kitsap Bank: Kitsap Bank is back as a cash sponsor for a second year supporting our mission (and theirs). Visit their web site and you will find a complete page dedicated to sustainability. The bank is committed to reducing their carbon footprint, partnering with vendors who offer sustainable products, actively reducing waste and investing in energy-efficient facilities. It is an important corporate culture to serve as responsible stewards of our limited natural resources. Kitsap Bank also takes part in the "Green Divide,” a program to bring solar energy to underserved populations.

Wicklund Dental: How does a dental office align with sustainability you ask? Welcome to Wicklund Dental, a first-time cash sponsor of the Trashion Show and a Bainbridge Island dental office that has been a Washington State EnviroStars business since 2004. To receive EnviroStars recognition, a company needs to lead in energy and water conservation, utilize safer products for employees and customers, and critically evaluate its hazardous waste reduction practices each year. Dr. Wicklund has also been awarded the "Best of Bainbridge Best Dentist” by our community for numerous years. 

A Kitchen That Works: This Bainbridge-based company is another great partner who has joined the show this year as a cash sponsor. A Kitchen That Works is a full-service design/build firm specializing in residential remodels. The company was acknowledged as "Sustainable Business of the Year” in 2017 by the Bainbridge Island Chamber of Commerce. The owners strive to educate their clients about sustainable design and construction, as it is a part of their lifestyle, living in a Three-Star Built Green® home that they designed and built in 2006. A Kitchen That Works™ is an active member of the Kitsap Building Association's Remodelers Council and Built Green® program and the Northwest Eco Building Guild. Co-owners Molly McCabe and Clive Pardy hold the certified Green Professional (CGP) designation and Sustainable Building Advisor certificate, respectively. Along with their professional involvement in sustainability, they also are avid volunteers with Bainbridge Island Zero Waste!


Sheldon Orthodontics is committed to creating a healthy environment. Some of their current sustainability practices include recycling, offering reusable water bottles and tumblers as well as using FSC certified and recycled papers for business documents and other office supplies. Dr. Sheldon and her staff are currently working on finding alternatives to their patient treasure chest toys to reduce plastic and are also exploring ways to ensure their electricity use is as clean and healthy as possible!
