Zeftron launches sustainable practices award
DALTON, Georgia - Zefton nylon has announced its first annual Sustainable Practices Awards for industry professionals who "employ and utilize unique sustainable practices." The award will be presented on Earth Day, 22 April 2009.
The award recognizes sustainable practices in three key areas: at work, at home and in the broader community.
"Zeftron nylon has been producing environmentally responsible yarn systems for more than 30 years and now it's our turn to acknowledge people who are making a difference," said Tim Blount, Zeftron nylon's business leader.
"We believe that in order to create a truly sustainable future, everyone must practice environmentally responsible activities, not just at their work or in the product they make, but in every aspect of their life. That's why this award recognizes facility professionals who are taking innovative strides to create more sustainable environments at home, at work and in their community," he added.
Everyone who enters the competition has a chance to boast about their own environmental practices, Blount said. All entries will be judge on originality and innovation. The best submissions will become part of the company's Best Practices and Green Tips, to be made public at the end of 2009 as a resource for both professionals and consumers.
Entry forms are available at http://spa.zeftronnylon.com and may be submitted online.
Entries will be accepted from 22 April to 30 September 2009. There is no cost to enter.
