In addition to using plastic moving crates and biodegradable wrap, EkoMovers plants a tree for every new customer, and even invites the client to help. It's this good-hearted environmental agenda that earned the company a nod from the Cincinnati Business Courier as a finalist for Green Business of 2011.
