Gryphon Scientific Employees Participate in Friends of Sligo Creek Sweep the Creek Event

In September 2019, Gryphon Scientific staff participated in the Friends of Sligo Creek Sweep the Creek Event, which involved clearing over 15 bags of trash from Sligo Creek waterway and the surrounding Becca Lilly Neighborhood Park. This activity was organized by Gryphon’s “Green Team” as part of Gryphon’s commitment to environmental stewardship in our business practices and the community.

Gryphon has been a Montgomery County Green Certified Business since 2016 and recently renewed our certification through 2022. To achieve this certification, Gryphon has implemented a comprehensive set of environmental policies and guidelines, including:

  • Using green purchasing criteria and a preferred green vendor list
