An intriguing new green jobs and employee engagement project is under development in the University Circle neighborhood in Cleveland, Ohio. Evergreen Cooperative Laundry is an innovative economic development initiative that combines private investment, New Market Tax Credits, and philanthropic support in an effort to build long-lasting community assets in an area that has been hard-hit by joblessness and poverty, while simultaneously helping to “green” the health care industry.
