Bud’s is a non-profit job-training program funded by sales of new and lightly used building materials donated to the organization. Their mission is to employ and job-train individuals rebuilding lives from prison, addictions and homelessness through our career and life-skill development program.
Our advisors helped Bud's Warehouse save energy through the use of energy efficient lighting. Our staff provided Bud's with 90 CFL bulbs due to their eligibility for a direct install (in limited quantities) which will provide a significant amount of energy savings as well as monthly utility savings.

Gene Tang's 1515 restaurant was one of the first participants in the Denver Energy Challenge to receive a free lighting upgrade. With city staff support, he upgraded his dining room to dimmable CFLs, and then proceeded to upgrade to a more efficient AC unit and Furnace. His restaurant is also certified as sustainable through the Certifiably Green Denver program. Gene continues to be a dedicated supportor of sustainability and energy efficiency.
1515 Restaurant recently had signs made to show how they are conserving resources with energy, water and waste. This is a great way to highlight their efforts and let their guests know there are resources for them too.
