Natural Awakenings OKC magazine will present the Environmental Stewardship Award to one local business each month in recognition of their efforts to go above and beyond standard sustainability practices. Nominations are currently being accepted, and each month’s winner will be featured in the magazine as well as on the website. Recipients will also receive an award for display purposes.
All businesses are eligible for this honor, from multinational companies to small social enterprises. Nominations should include the name of the business, what it does, what the inspiration for being environmentally conscious is, any challenges that were overcome to go green, actions taken to achieve sustainability, and the benefits of those actions.
Businesses have not always had incentive to invest time or money in eco-friendly practices, but in recent years, as consumer awareness of health, lifestyle and the environmental benefits of going green has increased, so has the demand for doing businesses with companies that fit those values. Sustainability practices are beneficial for companies, and the number of businesses implementing green measures is on the rise.
“In the famous words of Kermit the Frog, ‘It’s not easy being green.’ And that’s why we believe these businesses deserve to be awarded for their hard work and dedication to our planet,” explains Natural Awakenings OKC magazine Publisher Jeannette Draper.
