A New ‘Whey’ of Doing Business

Businesses change. At GreenWhey, we know this as much as anyone. In our first year of operation, we’ve gone from being a regional wastewater treatment center serving a tight-knit network of cheese factories to thinking much broader. How can we expand upon our mission to make waste treatment clean and sustainable? What businesses in the region and the country might benefit from the services we provide? Where should we turn to get our message out? These are the questions we’re asking ourselves as we move into the next phase of our project. With that in mind, we’re rolling out...

Putting the ‘Green’ Back in ‘Green Thumb’

It’s officially Spring here in northern Wisconsin. A time for cleaning up the house, breaking out the grill–and for many–planting a garden.

GreenWhey Heads to Madison for ‘Ag Day at the Capitol’

Should we support the dairy business or the environment? It’s a question that constantly confounds politicians, regulators, and members of the business community seeking a balance between economic health and clean water. At GreenWhey, we think the answer is “all of the above.” It’s the message we’ll be spreading all day today at the “Ag Day at the Capitol” event in Madison. We’ll be meeting with legislators, business owners, and members of the public, telling them that balancing people, planet, and profit in our state’s largest industry is...
