National award for Blackmores

Green-Apple-Award-Winner

Mel Blackmore receiving the Green Apple Environment Award

One of the highlights of 2012 for Blackmores was getting an invitation to collect a national environmental award at the Houses of Parliament.

The Green Apple Environment Awards were launched in 1994 by The Green Organisation and have become well established as one of the most popular environmental campaigns in the world. The awards are well established as one of the major environmental recognition schemes, both in the UK and Internationally. The Green Apple Awards campaign is run by The Green Organisation, an independent, non-political, non-profit organisation that recognises, rewards and promotes environmental best practice around the world.

Unbeknown to us, we had been nominated for the awards as a result of winning some regional environmental awards in 2011. So we were delighted to accept the award in November and also received a tour of the House of Commons!

Blackmores was also very proud to be nominated once again as a finalist for the Hertfordshire Green Business Awards for ‘Best Environmental Project of the Year’.
