Posted Nov 13 2010 9:17am
My son, Chris and daughter, Rita were at the Innovator of the Year Awards held at Sweetwater Sound on November 11.
The Green ABC's were the recipient of the Innovator of Year in the Retail Category and we were happy with the recognition!
Because, let's face it, it isn't easy being green here in Fort Wayne, Indiana! But, we are all trying to put our best foot forward.
One of the finest signs of this was the place that the Innovator Awards were announced.
Sweetwater's headquarters building is the first commercial structure in northeast Indiana to receive LEED Platinum certification by the U.S. Green Building Council. And, just recently, the City of Fort Wayne in collaboration with the Northeast Indiana Sustainability Council ( formerly the Northeast Indiana Green Builders Coalition) came together to form the Bright Green Program.
This program will help bring area businesses opportunities to learn sustainable business practices.
Fort Wayne is up and coming and the recognition of the Green ABC's for Kids shows our business leaders have the future of their kids in mind!
