The Rotary Club of Kapa‘a is seeking nominations through June 23 for its second annual 2008 Kauai Green Business Initiative Awards program.
The annual program honors local businesses that have gone beyond environmental compliance to adopt and exemplify best “green” practices over the past year.
Honorees should have a track record in the areas of efficiently using raw materials and supplies; managing waste and shipping and handling responsibly; and saving water and energy. Entrants must show that their initiatives benefit the environment as well as the company’s economic performance and long-term success.
Categories include: hotel, retailer, activity, builder, home business, grower, technology, energy, nonprofit, restaurant, publishing and real estate. Consideration is given to businesses in other categories if they meet the criteria.
Last year’s winners include Otsuka’s, Sheraton Kauai, Hawaiian Mahogany Co., Unlimited Construction, Aloha We Deliver, Kayak Kaua‘i, Permaculture Kauai, National Tropical Botanical Garden, Blossoming Lotus and Malama Kaua‘i.
