Natural e GREEN: Eco Edge Awards Nomination 2013

It's that time of year again and we are asking for YOUR support!  You have the chance to nominate Natural e GREEN for the 2013 Eco Edge Award again! Since we opened our 'virtual' doors in 2009 we've been nominated for this awesome award and we were humbled to win the award in 2011.

Just being nominated by you means so much to us because it tell us we are doing something right and to keep on doing it!

What is the Eco Edge Award?

This  award is sponsored by the City of Airdrie Environmental Services Board and is given to:

"a business that promotes, supports and provides leadership in the environmental arena and that demonstrates a long-term commitment to sustainability."

When we have filled out the questionnaire in previous years after being nominated to explain WHY Natural e GREEN deserves this award we realized so many ways our business can make an impact on the environment and so many ways to do things differently.

What are Some of the Ways Natural e GREEN Qualifies for this Award?

Some of the questions asked on the questionnaire to us were:

Packaging: What kind of packaging does your business use. Do you re-use/reduce/refuse.
Water: How do you minimize water consumption/waste.
Recycling: Do you recycle materials. Do you use recycled materials.
Energy: How do you minimize energy and encourage others to minimize it.

This award and questionnaire made us realize so many other ways to minimize our impact on the environment and we used that spreadsheet of questions to re-define our business over the years. We've reduced our waster and increase online/digital communications. We put consideration into the suppliers we use depending on how they package their materials (if they use unnecessary packaging we are not likely to use them!)
