This year’s Green Awards ceremony took place on Tuesday 1 November at a wonderful celebratory occasion at The Gatehouse Theatre, Stafford.
The Green Awards recognise and promote the hard work of local organisations - including all businesses, schools, community groups, faith groups, farmers and landowners in the Borough - that are demonstrating an active commitment to good environmental practice.
Since the Green Awards began in 1996 around 700 initiatives and schemes have been submitted to the Green Awards showing just how much environmental awareness, commitment and passion there is in our Borough.
The awards support the priorities of Stafford Borough Council ie supporting prosperity for all, making the area a greener, cleaner and safer place to live and work and contributing towards the health and wellbeing of our community.
The Green Awards are aimed at all organisations demonstrating an active commitment to good environmental practice.
Categories include: Business, Youth and Education, Community and Wellbeing and the Public Sector. There are special prizes relating to green tourism, energy, wildlife and transport, plus the ‘Green Purse’ and ‘Let’s Recycle’ awards and a ‘Best Newcomer’ prize.
At a time when there are so many pressures on our environment, please tell us what you’re doing to make a difference to protect both people and the planet.
