BELLEVUE, WA — The Verizon Wireless Communications Store in Bellingham is one of 41 Verizon Wireless retail stores nationwide to have received Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED®) certification from the United States Green Building Council (USGBC). Verizon Wireless has more LEED rated stores than any other wireless service provider, and is the first and only wireless service provider to join the LEED Volume Program.

The LEED certified Communications Store-located at 1 Bellis Fair Parkway- optimizes water and energy use, enhances indoor environmental quality and reduces waste through specifications and responsible procurement and construction practices, including: the use of high efficiency lighting design to reduce energy consumption and carefully selecting non-toxic finishes, adhesives, paints and coatings to ensure high indoor air quality for employees and customers.
