Community Builders Awards – Environment 2019
In 2019, reThink Green was awarded the Community Builder’s Award in the Environment Category.
The Community Builders Awards of Excellence, presented by Northern Life, honours individuals and organizations in nine community categories. Nominations are judged by an independent panel, collectively representing expertise in each award category.
In the Environment Category, the award recognizes a person or group that has had an important positive impact on our environment, both man-made and natural. Award winners demonstrate what is possible in improving our environmental footprint in our community.
MPP France Gelinas notes that since 2006, reThink Green’s “efforts demonstrate the leadership and collaborative spirit tenacity and hard work needed to be true community builders.”
