Agromin was given the Orange County Council for Green Impacts (OCCGI) 2011 Innovative Business Award.
Each year, the OCCGI selects one business in the county to recognize for its innovative green practices. This year, Agromin was announced as the winner at the June 8 Green Impacts and TrashARTist Challenge awards dinner at the Anaheim Hilton.
Orange County's MUZEO, a center for arts, knowledge, entertainment and culture, created the Green Impacts Events in collaboration with Anaheim Hilton and Orange County Department of Education (OCDE). These annual events are designed to heighten awareness and education of green innovation in business and culture.
Agromin is a proud sponsor of many Orange County school gardening programs. It supplies these schools with quality mulch and compost needed to maintain healthy and successful gardens.
With each delivery of mulch and compost, Agromin sends a strong sustainability message to schoolchildren. Agromin processes renewable organic materials from over 50 California communities in Ventura, Santa Barbara, Los Angeles, Monterey and Orange Counties. Each year, Agromin receives almost 380,000 tons of this material that would otherwise end up in landfills and then uses a safe, natural and sustainable process to transform it into premium soil products that are used by farmers, landscapers and consumers. Kids quickly understand the importance of recycling and of providing sustainable solutions to our planet's needs.
