Julie Kelly, an interior designer at Chicago Design Network, was recently named the grand prize winner of Zeftron nylon’s second annual Sustainable Practices Award. Sheri Gorman, RD Weis Co.’s director of business development/marketing, was runner up.
Kelly was selected for various eco-friendly lifestyle practices, which include reselling technology equipment and recycling materials at work as well as using energy-efficient products at home. Gorman’s sustainability efforts include coordinating reclamation activities for her customers and recycling clothes.
“Honoring professionals like Julie and Sheri who live green at home, at work and in their communities is a key part of our ongoing environmental awareness efforts,” said Timothy Blount, Zeftron business leader.
Kelly selected Greensburg GreenTown, a non-profit in Greensburg, Kan., to receive a $1,000 donation in her name. A $250 donation was made on Gorman’s behalf to City Parks Foundation, a non-profit in New York City.
Entries for the 2011 Zeftron nylon Sustainable Practices Award will be accepted on Earth Day 2011, April 22. For more information visit www.zeftronnylon.com.
