North Florida Green Chamber to Present Water Quality Award
Spotlighting water quality improvement, conservation in August
The North Florida Green Chamber of Commerce (NFGCC) is recognizing August as National Water Quality Month.
To focus on a natural resource, we usually take for granted, the North Florida Green Chamber has announced its inaugural Water Quality Award to be presented at the end of August.
“We often fail to recognize how regular human activities impact our water quality. Water Quality Month reminds us how our actions affect our waterways and sources. The award will focus on how we are doing locally. Water Quality Month reminds us to take a long, hard look at what businesses and our community are doing to protect sources of fresh water,” noted NFGCC Executive Director Christina W. Kelcourse, Esq, CFP, CRPC.
The Water Quality Award will recognize examples of water quality improvement and conservation that best demonstrates significant, lasting, and measurable excellence in water quality improvement or in prevention of water quality degradation by Green Chamber members and other businesses in North Florida.
NFGCC is a regional networking organization for all sizes of businesses and community organizations including non-profits that emphasize green and sustainable business practices. The award is being created in cooperation with the St. Johns Riverkeepers.
