Remsol backs Green Awards

By Remsol Limited

03 Sep 2013

Preston-based waste and environmental management specialist, Remsol, has thrown its support behind the Green Awards, signing on the dotted line to become the headline sponsor, and taking over the mantle from BAE Systems.

Keen on practising what they preach, environmental issues have always played an important role in the company's day-to-day operations and this isn't the first time the company has been involved in such a campaign.

The firm, which helps organisations from across the UK to cut waste, recycle more and save money, is already known for its Big Green Calendar competition, which encouraged primary school children from over 400 schools across Lancashire to contribute. Last year, youngsters submitted hundreds of green-themed drawings which were whittled down to 36 winning entries, compiled into a calendar and sold to help raise money for the Lancashire Wildlife Trust.

Remsol also sponsored the Green Primary School of the Year category in 2012.

Other projects on the horizon include a soon-to-be-launched charity recycling scheme, with details to be revealed in the near future.

Remsol managing director Lee Petts said: "We're very excited to be involved in the Lancashire Green Awards, an issue that's very close to our hearts.

"Now in their fifth year, the awards received around 200 entries last time and we are very much looking forward to reading about and celebrating some of the county's best success stories.

"We are backing these awards in particular as, like the work we do, they are very inclusive and touch all elements of society, from schools to big business."

As principal sponsor, Remsol will take an active role in the judging process and has also succeeded in encouraging the organisers to introduce a new category this year, the Green Ambassador award.

"I felt very strongly that the Lancashire Green Awards should also recognise the efforts of individuals that inspire others to lead a greener lifestyle or, in business, to adopt more environmentally sustainable practices."

Remsol has twice been a finalist in the awards itself, in the categories of Green Business of the Year (2010) and Green Community Project (2011). To learn more about the awards, and how to enter, visit www.lancashiregreenawards.co.uk Even just being nominated for an award is a great way to showcase your environmental credentials and inspire others to act, so get involved! Remsol is also backing the LadyFest Preston event in October, another example of how we like to support the communities in which we work and live.
