The Go Green 2016 Awards

Published on .

We had a fantastic night on the 18th February at The Bristol hotel for the Go Green 2016 Awards!

There was a real buzz in the room with over 200 businesses demonstrating their commitment to Going Green. We were joined by the Schmoozenbergs providing lively music throughout the ceremony as well as tasty sustainable canapes and Go Green chocolates from local chocolatier Zara’s chocolates. The winners received beautiful wooden awards created from wood received by the Bristol Wood Recycling Project and crafted by The Factory at Knowle West Media Centre.

With so many inspiring award applications, it was very difficult to chose the winners! The organisations that went away with an award have really shown a commitment to Going Green and embedding this within their organisation.
