Green Business Partnership welcomes Quick Draw Quality Pawn

Please join us in welcoming Quick Draw Quality Pawn, the first pawn and gun store to become a Sarasota County Green Business Partner and our newest member.

About the Partner

standalone green business logoQuick Draw Quality Pawn is 100-percent focused on energy conservation, waste reduction, the reuse of products and goods, and other sustainability efforts. The business collects and recovers all its packing materials and reuses them when shipping products. Company leaders also have worked with the shipping companies to reduce unwanted packaging in the supply chain.

Quick Draw’s sustainability measures for the business building include the use of LED and T-12 lighting, reinsulated walls and ceiling, and tinting building-front windows to reduce UV light by 100 percent. The building interior uses repurposed shelving, cabinets and display cases.

Quick Draw Quality Pawn is a welcomed addition to the Green Business Partnership.

From the company:

Quick Draw Quality Pawn is a family-owned pawn and gun store in Venice. We have been around for almost 10 years and cherish being able to serve our local community. Our employees are very conscious of our fragile environment, and we try to go above and beyond to maintain a Green Business. If you’re ever in the area, please stop by as we have a great selection of items to help you reduce waste and be a part of the solution. We are just like Pawn Stars with less fat guys!
