GreenStar Recognized for Four 'Signs of Sustainability'

signs of_sustainabilityGreenStar and GreenStar Community Projects were recently recognized by Sustainable Tompkins' annual "Signs of Sustainability"program for "outstanding efforts" to support regional sustainability. On Sunday, Dec. 11, GreenStar joined many other community organizations in receiving awards. GreenStar was recognized in four categories: "Milestones," for reaching our 40th anniversary; "New Sustainability Activity by an Existing Organization — Food System," for establishing our Local Bulk section where one can find a large variety of locally grown and milled grains and flours; "New Sustainability Activity by an Existing Organization — Reduce, Reuse, Recycle and Composting," for our reusable bag program; and "New Sustainability Activity by an Existing Organization — Sustainability Events," for GreenStar Community Projects' work to host Ithaca's first annual Food Justice Summit.

Sustainable Tompkins has noted these "Signs of Sustainability" each year for the past five years, and it is amazing how our shared regional sustainability efforts have grown!

GreenStar's Marketing Manager, Joe Romano, accepts the first of four Signs of Sustainability Awards from Sustainable Tompkins Director Gay Nicholson.
