Awarding Green Business in Hampton Roads
Norfolk, Va. – CozyPure®, pioneers in the green living movement for 22 years are celebrating Earth Day by recognizing business peers in Hampton Roads as leaders for their commitment to offer only green living products or services.
Originally known as Tomorrow’s World, one of the first eco stores in America, CozyPure® would like to extend gratitude while raising awareness of Earth Day and green living.
Specializing exclusively in eco-friendly consumer products and services requires a high level of commitment, and green businesses provide a valuable asset to our communities in their efforts of environmental practices and selectivity. Too often they are not recognized for their contributions in helping our environment with their uncompromising stance to offer only products and services which are more beneficial to both people and planet.
“I know first hand the level of commitment necessary when you decide to offer only sustainable products. First the extensive research involved to find or produce those products, followed by educating the consumer about the benefits. We take the role of teacher in sharing our knowledge about how and why a green product choice is more beneficial than the conventional product.” explains owner Cheryl Hahn. “Lastly the commitment to stay strong in your mission, and not waver. As a business owner, the temptation to stray outside the ‘green’ set of standards is always there, so it takes passion and dedication to stay true to your mission statement. I understand the many challenges facing authentic green businesses, especially with green-washing being so prevalent, and that’s why this year for Earth Day we decided to recognize our business peers.”
Businesses selected for the Green Commitment Award will be presented with a Certificate of Appreciation, as well as an exclusive “Green Business Leader” throw pillow, made by CozyPure®, to reward and recognize their commitment as a green business leader in Hampton Roads.
Awardees will be announced on Earth Day, April 22nd. If you know of a green business in Hampton Roads that should be considered for this award, please contact CozyPure® at 757.480.8500.
