CG Roxane introduces its California Youth Sustainability Awards, aiming to further the company’s commitment to the community through supporting young leaders who work tirelessly to make a difference with sustainability.

 

The family-owned and operated company – which produces the Crystal Geyser Alpine Spring Water – has always been dedicated to environmental innovation and partnered with organizations such as American Forests and the California Coastal Commission.

The total amount of $55,000 will be divided into six prizes given to young individuals who are working to make their community more responsible and sustainable. Additionally, all winners will receive CG Roxane branded merchandise and a tour in CG Roxane’s recycled plastic facility.

The awards will be divided as follows:

  • One Grand Prize “Hero Award” of $20,000
  • Two “Champion Awards” of $10,000
  • Three “Leader Awards” of $5,000

“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.”

“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.”

All Californian youngsters passionate about the environment are encouraged to apply. Candidates will be asked to write three short essays discussing problems facing their community, solutions to these problems, the importance of community, and further plans of sustainable efforts. Application starts on August 23, 2021, and ends on October 15, 2021. Winners will be announced on November 15, 2021, on America Recycles Day, which will also be the two-year anniversary of the recycled plastic facility.
