New award will recognize sustainable projects with a focus on water use efficiency.
July 10, 2018, NEW YORK— Ewing Irrigation & Landscape Supply and Audubon International are now accepting nominations for the Water & Sustainability Innovation Award—a new opportunity for landscape companies, organizations and municipalities.
“As critical water challenges become increasingly prevalent, innovative projects that use sustainable practices serve as important examples for our country and the world,” said Warren Gorowitz, Ewing Vice President of Sustainability.
This new award will recognize a project that addresses sustainability challenges and water-efficiency, and contributes to a healthy environment, equity (quality of life), or a vital economy.
“We want to recognize and promote the positive impact landscapes and other green spaces have in creating more sustainable communities,” said Christine Kane, CEO of Audubon International.
To be eligible, projects must have been initiated within the past three years, and been operational for at least one year.
