Employment at Blue Star has even demonstrated to be downright therapeutic, leading employees to become more focused through clear tasks, and more social by bringing them to the same warm team environment each day. It’s an innovative business, built by redefining the things we too often just abandon or throw away. Blue Star makes the old new again, but really, they specialize in giving our planet and its people fresh starts.
