Vote Today: Two Portland Businesses Honored for Social Impact

lede5

Back in December, we named local businesswoman and sustainability maven Sattie Clark as a Portlander to watch in 2010.

Turns out Business Week agrees. The magazine has named Clark's company and another Portland business among 26 of "America's Most Promising Social Entrepreneurs."

Eleek, the company Clark runs with her husband Eric Kaster, builds sustainable custom-designed lighting and other fixtures. The other Portland company honored by Business Week, Sustainable Harvest, deals in fair-trade coffee.

Vote here to put these Portland companies over the top in a reader poll to select the nation's best social entrepreneur. And while we're on the subject of groundbreaking local businesses, be sure to check out this week's cover story on Portland's role in the emerging hemp industry.
