Futures Supplies & Support Services Ltd, based in Croydon, has been presented with its Green Heroes 2009 Wall Shield in recognition of its environmental project – Focusing on the Future.

The trophy was presented by top botanist and TV personality Professor David Bellamy OBE and Warren Edmondson of Nettoyer Media, aboard the Royal Yacht Britannia, Edinburgh, on 13th February.

The Shields are awarded annually in recognition of companies, councils and communities carrying out projects that enhance the environment and wish to share their experience and knowledge with the world.

The judges commented: “As a distributor of cleaning products, Futures Supplies has taken the decision to be responsible retailers and supply products which are effective but safe, and give guidance to all its customers. It believes that business is not just about the bottom line, but about the future too.”

The award-winning project will be featured in the next Green Book, the world’s only work of reference on environmental best practice. Futures Supplies also won a Green Apple Award, which was presented in November during a special prize giving ceremony at the House of Commons.

The Green Apple Awards campaign is run by The Green Organisation, an independent, non-political, non-profit organisation that recognises, rewards and promotes environmental best practice around the world. 

Its supporters include the Environment Agency, the Chartered Institution of Wastes Management, the Chartered Institute of Environmental Health and various other professional bodies.

National Organiser, Roger Wolens commented, “Organisations that go the extra mile and become Green Heroes are demonstrating a serious commitment to the world around them. They invest in a better future for us all and deserve to be recognised for their efforts.”

Futures Supplies is an award winning, established independent trade supplier of washroom and cleaning products including the Ecover range. The company’s objectives are to deliver service, quality, value, reliability and sustainability through continuous improvement.
