The City of Akron, Summit County, the Greater Akron Chamber, Keep Akron Beautiful/Greenprint for Akron and a host of sustainability sponsors want to recognize your Akron/Summit County organization for your efforts to institute more sustainable practices…or give you information and ideas on beginning a sustainability plan by sharing best practices.
