Floorbrite, based in Sale, has won a Green Apple Environment Award in the international campaign to find the greenest companies, councils and communities. Floorbrite was awarded the accolade for helping Manchester polythene manufacturer and supplier, Duo UK, achieve zero to landfill status by implementing recommendations made by the cleaning and facility company’s waste and environmental consultant, Trudie Williams.
The firm competed against more than 500 other nominations in the Green Apple Awards for Environmental Best Practice, and was presented with its trophy and certificate at a ceremony in the Houses of Parliament.
Nik Wyers, joint managing director at Floorbrite, said: “We’re honoured to have received a Green Apple award two years running, and all credit has to go to Trudie’s team for their hard work and dedication to getting results. Trudie has done an incredible job of creating bespoke, effective solutions for businesses looking to improve their waste management streams and providing invaluable insight into small changes that can have a big impact on the earth’s resources and business performance.”
Zoe Brimelow, brand director at Duo UK, added: “Trudie and the team at Floorbrite are experts in implementing green measures which save waste going to landfill - everything they recommended has had a positive impact on our own eco-credentials and sustainability targets. With their help, we’ve diverted 182.28 tonnes of waste from landfill, saved 3098 trees from destruction and the equivalent to 150.66 kg of Co2 to date.”
