IDEM accepting Environmental Excellence applications

Tuesday, March 23, 2010

INDIANAPOLIS -- The Indiana Department of Environmental Management (IDEM) is now accepting applications for the 2010 Indiana's Governor's Awards for Environmental Excellence.

Applications will be accepted until April 23.

All Indiana businesses, governments, individuals, technical assistance organizations, educational groups and non-profit organizations who can demonstrate exemplary environmental projects with measurable results may apply.

Governor's awards are open to all Indiana facilities, state and local units of government, individuals and technical assistance organizations that implement. Awards will be given for the following categories: Energy/Renewable Resources, Five Years' Continuous Improvement, Greening the Government, Land Use, Outreach or Education, Pollution Prevention and Recycling/Reuse.

Winners will be invited to a special presentation to celebrate their accomplishments.

"These awards exemplify the extraordinary efforts of Indiana businesses and citizens who take actions that improve the quality of life, positively affect the economy and protect our environment," IDEM Commissioner Thomas Easterly said. "Working toward these common goals is something that benefits the entire state."

IDEM is working to notify businesses, communities and other organizations in Indiana about the opportunity to submit nominations. For additional information on how to apply, contact Anthony Sullivan at 1-800-988-7901 or e-mail asulliva@idem.IN.gov.

When I stop seeing open burning in our countryside, and I stop seeing garbage on the side of the road? I will say that Indiana deserves an environmental award.

But so far, its a joke. Just take a ride up 59 north or south some evening. Plenty of burning and litter...Indiana is way behind on clean air and clean environment. Sorry.
