A member of Green America since 2000, American College of Healthcare Sciences (ACHS) and the Apothecary Shoppe College Store have been re-certified as Green America Gold Certified Businesses.

Green America's vision is to work for a world where all people have enough, where all communities are healthy and safe, and where the bounty of the earth is preserved for all the generations to come. ACHS supports this vision through the College mission and partnerships with dedicated organizations like Green America.

"We are thrilled ACHS has been re-certified with Green America's highest honor, the Gold Seal, for our dedication to providing leadership in holistic health education through comprehensive professional online and on-campus education and high-quality natural products with a commitment to sustainable practices and principles," says ACHS President Dorene Petersen. "A big thank you to our students, alumni, and Apothecary Shoppe customers for supporting ACHS and for supporting other Green America members."

To display the Green America Green Business Certification Gold Seal of Approval, ACHS successfully met Green America's stringent green business requirements. The Green Business Certification is awarded to businesses that are actively using their business as a tool for positive social change, operating a "values-driven" enterprise according to principles of social justice and environmental sustainability, and environmentally responsible in the way they source, manufacture, and market their products and run their operations and facilities.
