Marin county, California, has a 'green' reputation: from reclaimed water usage to composting school lunch leftovers, it's an ecologically-conscious area. It's no surprise, then, that it would be home to licensed GreenPlumber Benjamin Franklin Plumbing. "We want to be on the leading edge of the green movement," says Daniel Gagne, the franchise's owner, "by educating our employees and the public on products and systems that will help reduce impact on the environment while preserving natural resources that are so vital to everyone’s well being. Our hope is that by becoming leaders in the GreenPlumber movement, we'll have an impact in the communities we serve. We want to let consumers know there is a way to preserve resources by making the right choice and adapting to change."

Benjamin Franklin specializes in residential service, so plumbers are able to work directly with homeowners to implement energy- and water-efficient solutions. "This will be a great tool to educate our employees and our customers about the importance of conservation of our resources and responsibility when it comes to the environment," Gagne says. The company will focus their 'green' work on solar hot water, water-saving technologies like low-flow showerheads and toilets, and graywater recycling.

Gagne is confident that being a licensed GreenPlumber will bring recognition and set the company apart from its competitors, but that's not his only reason for being a GreenPlumber, he says: "We all have to do our part if we want to secure a better future for the generations to come."

Benjamin Franklin Plumbing is the fastest-growing plumbing company in the U.S., with more than 200 franchises across the country. This San Rafael, California location, in business for 13 years and employing 20 plumbers, is the first of the Ben Franklin franchises to become a licensed GreenPlumber.
