CG Roxane Announces California Youth Sustainability Awards, Allocating $55,000 Across Six Prizes To Celebrate The People Who Put The Planet First
NOVATO, Calif., Aug. 23, 2021 /PRNewswire/ — CG Roxane LLC, the privately held, family-owned and operated maker of Crystal Geyser® Alpine Spring Water®, today announced its inaugural California Youth Sustainability Awards, which aim to encourage and support young community leaders who are making a difference in the sustainability arena — a key area of focus to CG Roxane as exhibited by their dedication to environmental innovation and partnerships with organizations like American Forests and the California Coastal Commission.
“This is an exciting opportunity for CG Roxane to celebrate the young leaders who have invested in their communities and our planet, by acknowledging and rewarding them,” said CG Roxane Director of Corporate Social Responsibility Charles Calvat. “The future is founded in our youth and we are excited to foster their sustainability and community efforts, which align with our commitments as a company.”
The annual awards program will give $55,000 across six prizes recognizing young individuals who are making a difference in their communities through sustainability efforts. Awardees will also have the opportunity to tour CG Roxane’s San Bernardino recycled plastic (rPET) facility as well as receive CG Roxane branded merchandise. Award tiers include:
- One Grand Prize “Hero Award” of $20,000
- Two “Champion Awards” of $10,000
- Three “Leader Awards” of $5,000
The judging panel includes members from CG Roxane as well as its partners, including The California Coastal Commission. The California Coastal Commission has been a partner since 2008, with CG Roxane sponsoring its California Coastal Cleanup Day, a statewide volunteer event focused on the marine environment.
“We’re thrilled to be a part of CG Roxane’s Sustainability Awards Program and have the opportunity to help recognize talented individuals for their work,” said California Coastal Commission Marine Debris Program Manager Eben Schwartz. “It’s wonderful young Californians will be celebrated for sustainability efforts that are making a positive, lasting impact on our planet.”
Applications can be submitted at CrystalGeyserPlease.com/sustainability. Candidates will be asked to share three short essays. The first asks candidates to describe a problem their community is facing and the solution they developed and worked on, the second, sharing what community means to them and third, how will they plan to use this award to further their local sustainability efforts. Candidates are required at the time of submission to have been a California resident for a minimum of one year, be under the age of 21, a U.S. citizen or eligible non-citizen and be able to demonstrate tangible action they’ve taken in their community.
The call for submissions opens August 23, 2021 and ends October 15, 2021 and winners will be announced on America Recycles Day on November 15, 2021, also signifying the two-year anniversary of CG Roxane’s San Bernardino rPET facility and recycling center opening.
