Do you have a product you believe is both eco-friendly and unique? Does your company manufacture unique products made from recycled content? Do your products promote the use of materials recovered from solid waste? Are your products made from sustainable materials that might be considered “non-traditional?” Do your products provide sustainable advantages that companies and organizations can utilize as part of their construction or in daily operations?
