Green Business Award
Over 400 businesses with over 30,000 employees surround the Norwalk River, which parallels Route 7 from Danbury to Norwalk.
Local businesses along the river or anywhere in the watershed are now eligible to earn a Green Business Award to publicize and celebrate their eco-friendly practices. The award is based on a point system. Businesses that earn enough points can display this Green Award decal to alert customers of their green practices. NRWA will list Green Business Award recipients on this website and on social media to recognize their achievement.

The Green Business Award was created by Ridgefield High School junior, Alexia Anglade. Alexia worked with the Norwalk River Watershed Association to earn her Girl Scout Gold Award, the highest leadership award given to Girl Scouts. Alexia got the idea, she says, “because I really started to notice which businesses have eco-friendly practices such as eliminating styrofoam, allowing customers to bring their own reusable cup for coffee, or actively recycling. I thought others may like to support businesses who have eco-friendly business practices.”
Alexia’s Green Business Award website, contains details for businesses interested in applying as well as helpful tips and information for anyone interested in reducing waste and addressing climate change. She is hoping towns around CT and beyond will adapt similar awards.
